Residents said on Thursday, no-parking signs went up on one side of rue Centrale, meaning that snow was scheduled to be removed overnight.
On Friday, however, the snow was still there.
That night, people say the signs were switched over to the other side of the street, but when they woke up Saturday, it was much of the same.
What‚Äôs more, is that on some parts of the three-kilometre road, there were no-parking signs on both sides of the street.
‚ÄúIf they‚Äôre gonna post something, I‚Äôd like for them to do it,‚ÄĚ said Hennessy. ‚ÄúAnd they can be a bit faster.‚ÄĚ
The lack of snow removal is frustrating for many in the area, but especially for those without driveways.
Susan Marchand says she‚Äôs been switching her car from one side of the street to the other for the last few days and says she‚Äôs had enough.
‚ÄúWhat I need is for them to, when they say something, as the signs, that they‚Äôre gonna do it,‚ÄĚ she said. ‚ÄúBecause if they‚Äôre not gonna do it, then don‚Äôt put the damn signs up.
‚ÄúLet us park where we just shovelled for the last 24 hours.‚ÄĚ
They admitted that there was some confusion about the signs put up on the road, but as of Sunday afternoon, they had sent city workers to fix the situation.
They say that one side of the street is scheduled to be cleared Sunday night, adding that they apologize to residents for the inconvenience.
