Answers: Questions about plowing snow in neighborhoods, watching eagles in Quincy

Posted: Jan. 8, 2011 2:01 am Updated: Nov. 28, 2014 2:26 pm

We live on a cul-de-sac, and a neighbor plows the street after it snows. While we appreciate him trying to do the right thing, he often blocks in our driveways with plowed snow after we have shoveled them clear. Is it legal to plow snow on a city street without permission?

No. There is a city ordinance which prohibits residents from pushing any snow onto city right of way, including in front of a driveway.

Where is the best place in Quincy to watch the eagles?

Lock and Dam 21. The annual "Eagles Along the Mississippi" viewing event is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 29 at the Lock and Dam 21 overlook. Spotting scopes will be available for the public to use, and rangers will be on hand to answer questions. Visitors also are urged to bring their own binoculars.
