History

Following the severe immobilizing snow storm of April 22-23, 1986, private citizens, local officials, and state officials believed a public meeting should be held in Pike County in order for all involved parties to present facts and air complaints. A public meeting was held on 12 June 1986, at which time representatives of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation gave a presentation on snow removal policy and practices. Those in attendance were given the opportunity to raise questions and air complaints regarding the April snow storm, and also regarding snow removal practices by PennDOT during the entire previous winter season. As a result of that public meeting, the Pike County Commissioners and PennDOT officials decided a "task force" should be formed to identify perceived problems with snow removal activities and to suggest solutions.
