Snow clearing efforts are a main topic of discussion at City Hall this week.
Darrell Smith, Hamilton's Manager of Road Operations confirms that a report is being prepared for city politicians that will outline "things that we did well" and "things we have to improve" following the snowfall on Boxing Day.
Smith says the report should be completed next week.
Councillor Sam Merulla claims that entire neighbourhoods were missed by private contracted snowplows and he's calling for compensation "for a service that wasn't delivered". Smith doesn't go that far, but he does acknowledge problems where subdivisions were missed.
Smith adds that contributing factors include having a number of new contractors and the fact that it was the city's first "significant snowfall event" in nearly two years.
