Letter: Moorhead snow removal criticism seems unjust

The recent criticism of the Moorhead Street Department for its snow removal efforts is truly unwarranted.

First, how often do we get a 10-plus-inch snowfall, which takes time to move out of the way?

The Street Department’s resources, equipment and manpower are limited, and we can’t have millions of dollars worth of snow removal equipment sitting in mothballs waiting for the next big snow event.

There are only 24 hours in a day, and the street department used those hours as efficiently as possible.

There isn’t a city in the same situation that could have done a better job.
