Algonquin Township Roads Seemed Plowed

Took some Algonquin Township roads about nine Christmas morning and they seemed properly plowed.

East Crystal Lake Road about nine AM, Christmas, 2017.

Of course, there was no real reason to think they would not be properly plowed.

  1. The next Christmas day will be December 25, 2018; 12:00 am…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  2. Were there any roads not plowed by Christmas morning? The snow was done buy mid/late-afternoon on the 24th.

    The better question would be (for any municipality/township) if the roads were plowed by dinner time on the 24th.

  3. I was out all day on Xmas Eve and the roads were terrible.

    Never saw a snow plow on any main streets much less side streets.

    There wasn’t even that much snow.

    I hope when we get a big snowfall the people in charge will be better.

  4. In Algonquin Township we had two call outs.

    The first call out went out at 1000 for a full pass with heavy salt.

    When we completed the first pass we opted for a second pass and then I sent the guys home.

    The second call out came at 1745 for a full pass and clean up.

    We were finished by 2130.

    I drove the roads personally and they looked good Christmas Morning.

    We used both salt and liquids.

    The roads look even better today with two days of sun shine.

    Thursday and Friday look like we could see some serious accumulation.

    Please do not park on the side of the streets during snowfalls.

    It makes it difficult to plow.

    Finally, please give our guys some space as they are clearing snow.

    These are heavy trucks and need the space.

    You don’t want salt and liquid thrown on your vehicles anyway.

    Be Blessed,

  5. Algonquin township roads were better then Cuba and Cary roads.

    We drove them both at two separate times.

    Love the people hating saying that Algonquin township wasn’t done.

    Your boy lost….

    move on and find a new hobby

  6. On Christmas Eve, Algonquin and Grafton roads were clean and very safe compared to McHenry County, Cook County and municipal roads between Chrystal Lake and Mount Prospect (including Route 14, Lake-Cook and Dundee all of which were a total mess and in some cases only had one lane plowed).

  7. County roads in the northern part of the county were great the entire event.

  8. New Rookie I’m my neighborhood, if he stops ripping up some of the grass, he’d of got a high B rating.

    Timing on both plowing events were later than should of been, C rating!

    09:00 in the morning, and 16:00 just before the evening rush.

    I saw a Alg truck just before 15:00 on Newbold, so I don’t understand Andrews 15:45

  9. No Nob you have no idea, as usual, of what you are talking about.

    They guy who plows your street has been at the township for over four years.

    There is no rookie in your neighborhood… just a senile old man who worships a guy who gave him a job.

    Sure am glad we document all of this.

    Normally I wouldn’t respond but these attacks on my guys will not go unanswered.

    The guys did a good job this weekend… and most people who have intellectual honesty know this.

    We will get better.

  10. Thank you Andrew! Awesome job once again. Don’t sweat the morons. You were put there because we trust you. Thank you for proving how right we were to do that!

  11. Keep up the great job Andrew!!!

    Nobs just a hater who got some crumbs from you know who.

  12. We drove through the area on the 24th, early afternoon, and late evening.

    The Alg. twnshp roads were the cleanest throughout.

    All were passable, but there was a noticeable difference.

    Great job crew!

    Thank You for giving up so much of your holiday time.

  13. Hah, good job, New Road Commissioner!

    We all know you have two full time jobs.

    Road Commissioner and Public Relations for Road Commissioner.

    You have a lot on your plate and you’re doing both jobs well.
