Living in the cities, this kind of surprises me that grand forks plows the alleys.  St. Paul alleys are plowed by private contractors, with households from each block pitching in to pay for it.  They city council now wants the city to takeover alley plowing.  When I lived on an alley in Grand Forks, almost ten years ago now, I don't remember this being an issue.  I also don't remember if the city of GF plowed our alley or if it was a private contractor.  Did this change recently?

15 years in this house this is the first time ever where my alley hasn't been plowed within 24 hours of the storm ending or slowing down...something wrong at city hall.

My buddy that live north of me in Fargo didn't have the plows got thru his neighbor until 6 pm last night. That's ridiculous.
