SPOKANE -- Spokane plow crews are gearing up to tackle the icy streets of Browne's Addition. Those living in the historic neighborhood are getting ready as well.
All day Sunday, neighbors were moving their cars and getting ready for the plows to come on Monday. Two crews are ready to clear the narrow streets Monday and Tuesday.
Neighbors have been warned if they don't move their cars, they will get towed. It is a policy plow crews say they will use this time around as well. City workers say neighbors living on north-south streets in Browne's Addition must move their vehicle before Monday morning. The same goes for those living on east-west streets before crews come Tuesday morning.
Sarah Sallee doesn't have a place to park. She was forced to park her car at a friend's house 60 miles away.
"Living in Browne's Addition you shouldn't have a car if you don't want it to get towed during winter time," said Sallee.
Others do have their own private driveways. John Marshall said even those who have a place to park are not immune to plowing problems.
"The worst part of the plows is when they come and cover up the driveway. I even took our son out one day hoping I could use him as a shield. But they came by and plowed anyway," said Marshall.
