City responds to another dose of winter weather

Cold temperatures are a reminder that it's winter in New York City.

New York City Department of Sanitation crews stayed ahead of Monday's snow by making sure it would melt after hitting the road.

Neighbors and kids made the most of it.

424 salt spreaders from the Department of Sanitation were dispatched from command center using video and computer tracking early Monday.  Snow plows are sent out for snow accumulations of more than 2 inches.

The Mayor's office says trash and recycling pickups will continue on schedule.

A web-based service from the city called "PlowNYC" (which allows neighbors to track crews around the boroughs) went off-line Monday afternoon.

A DSNY spokesperson said it was a technical difficulty and the agency has its own internal tracking system.  People checking the status of their neighborhood may have overloaded the server. It is operational again and will be available during the next snow fall.

The MTA reported no service issues Monday and crews from that agency were mainly concerned with clearing platforms and staircases.
