LANSINGBURGH, N.Y. – Snow emergencies were declared throughout the Capital Region on Tuesday and Wednesday, but one area doesn’t have snow emergencies and are left on their own.

Digging out and driving through, is what the residents of Lansingburgh are worried about after the mess of a snow storm on Wednesday.

Dina Wood “People don’t come clean off their car. Get it out of the way so that the plows can come through.”

Angela Warner, a resident, said Lansingburgh hasn’t called a snow emergency in years.

“They don’t enforce anyone to move their cars let people have,” she said.

Warner says people’s cars will sit for days. As an army of plow trucks go through the middle of city streets, snow banks build up along the side, making parking even more difficult.

“People parking in middle of street because they can’t park close enough to curb,” explained Warner.

There were plenty of residents out shoveling on Wednesday. Neighbors say it is up to them to help one another. They move cars to a cleared area and make room for the plows, a voluntary snow emergency.

Resident Rachel Sanders said “There usually is a lot of snow plows that don’t go by till late afternoon.”
