Flint homeowners say roads aren't being plowed

FLINT (WJRT) -

(02/04/14) - More snow is on the way, but homeowners in Flint are still trying to deal with the snow we already have.

Neighbors on Flint's south side say they're struggling with unplowed roads and they're worried about what might happen once more snow falls.

"You can see from the side, there's only a path through here, that's it," said John Edmonds, who lives on Berrywood Lane. "You only have a trail through here so therefore you may get stuck if you don't keep moving."

"People are having trouble getting up and down and people have shoveled their driveways but they can't get out of the driveway into the street," said Mercedes Menzies, who lives next to Edmonds.

Edmonds said he hasn't seen a plow come down Berrywood Lane in a while.

"We haven't had a plow truck come through here yet," he said.

Menzies is the president of the local advisory council for the MTA Your Ride service. Their job is to help the elderly and disabled get to doctor appointments or the grocery store.

With more snow on the way this week, she's worried about what will happen if it piles on top of these already slushy streets.

"If there are health emergencies or something like that, what's gong to happen?" she said.

Neighbors are just hoping something is done before it turns into an emergency.

"We're just asking that somebody come through here one time before the next storm or the storm after or this winter so we can have some service," Edmonds said.

We spoke with the MTA Your Ride service - they say they try their best to drive down all of these roads, but they'll have to postpone trips if they can't safely make it.

They haven't heard of any specific problems on Berrywood Lane, but again, there is more snow in the forecast.
