MONCTON, NB – The City of Moncton has been taking some heat over the poor condition of streets following the most recent snowstorm.

Many complaints have been coming from drivers and today the city issued a statement responding to recent snow removal operations.

City officials say drifting snow proved to be a major issue during the recent storm with cars packing down the snow after it drifted creating a layer of ice.

They say the packed snow and ice is difficult for equipment to remove which became a problem on many streets in the city.
