BK residents blast blizzard-cleanup blunders at hearing

BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents had their opportunity tonight to speak out about the city's alleged poor cleanup efforts during the Dec. 26 blizzard.

In attendance were representatives of the mayor's office and the Department of Sanitation, as well as City Council members.

At the hearing, one resident spoke out about how he called 911 when his wife was having a heart attack and no one came for days.

Many residents asked the why their neighborhoods were ignored, leaving them snowbound.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said the hearings should help the council ensure that this type of blunder never happens again.
