Neighbors on unplowed streets fear for safety

Posted: Updated:

Toledo neighbors who say their streets haven't been plowed all winter are concerned for their safety and that of their family members.

Feymon Walker who lives on Ross Street off Belmont says, "We care for my mother who's in her eighties."

He wonders how an ambulance would be able to get her should she need medical assistance.  The street is buried in snow and the road sign is also missing.

Neighbors say calls to the City of Toledo have brought no response.

Mike Murphy, who lives on Delence Street on the East Side says he was told by the City, they've put the street on a priority list. But that was a week ago and still no plow.

He's also concerned for safety. He says a police car got stuck on their street.
