BROOKLYN - Councilman David G. Greenfield is demanding that the city clean up the mess and expedite damage claims from the Department of Sanitation's botched Christmas-weekend blizzard snow removal.

Workers piled snow onto the sidewalks adjacent to Washington Cemetery. The snow subsequently collapsed over New Year's weekend, toppling the perimeter fence of the cemetery and damaging dozens of headstones.

Greenfield says the families of those buried in the cemetery are distraught over not being able to see their loved ones? resting place. He urged the city to repair the damage as soon as possible.
