When city crews recently dug up a city street, above, they found the asphalt road was just two-and-one-half inches thick, topped by an inch-and-a-half of non-structural chip seal material.
The City of Sidney is seeking input from the community on snow routes.
A workshop is being held Wednesday on what to do with snow in residential areas.
"I want to explain to people what we do, what we could do and let them pick their poison, for lack of a better term," Ed Sadler, Sidney City Manager, said. "If you talk to people around here, in the past they plowed residential streets before only to have people be unhappy with it."
Every method has been tried, Sadler said: plowing down the middle and moving it, plowing it to one or both sides, and not plowing at all.
There is no single ideal place, though, to move the snow.
