(New York, NY) — Today, New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer sent a letter to the Department of Sanitation (DSNY) following reports of havoc throughout the city due to poor preparation and an insufficient response to snow conditions.

In a city that routinely experiences heavy snowfalls each year, there is no reason that six inches of snow should have caused problems as severe as school buses taking more than 10 hours to bring kids home. New Yorkers need a full and complete explanation of what went wrong and how DSNY intends to prevent this from happening again
