Crews in York haul snow from Market Street

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Monday, York Mayor Kim Bracey announced extra measures to remove snow from city streets.

Starting at 7 p.m., crews with dump trucks and other equipment descended on East Market Street to clear snow piled up along the side of the road, sidewalks and parking meters.

They loaded the snow into dump trucks and hauled it to the Northwest Triangle off North Beaver Street. The area now looks more like a glacier.

It's the second night in a row.  Sunday night into Monday morning, crews cleared Market Street between Pershing Avenue and George Street. Monday night into Tuesday morning the clearing took place at Market Street between George and Queen Streets.

Mayor Kim Bracey told abc27 she wants areas to be safer for residents and she wants parking meters to be more accessible. The harsh weather has forced the city to ease up on parking enforcement and it's taking a hit financially.

"So it was time to make a decision to get the snow out of here and put it on one of our pieces of property and clear the passageways," Bracey said. "It's taxing our budget all the way around, to overtime, to salt expense, plow expense, those sorts of things. So a loss of revenue is not what we want to talk about right now. "

The extra snow removal will be restricted to Market Street.
