Mayoral hopeful Mike Vogiatzakis wants to remove snow instead of piling it into dangerous windrows during a major storm, a move he says will make streets safer and snow clearing more efficient.

Speaking in the City Hall courtyard, Vogiatzakis said he would reform the process so that, on major routes, graders and plows would move the snow into one lane so blowers could load it into trucks immediately. That would remove the large piles at intersections that often limit driver visibility.

"I am concerned about the basics of the city," said Vogiatzakis, who pointed to Montreal as a model of snow clearing.
