|113.||I believe the streets in my subdivision were never cleared to bare pavement|
|114.||I don't pay attention and time it.|
|4.||We did not see plows consistently out these last two storms (Specifically the first one). They did come through our neighborhood once and then we headed out and the main streets were still a mess. We really felt that their presence was lacking. If I have to choose, I want the main roads kept clear vs my subdivision plowed|
|6.||I believe that the Police Department should be more forceful to the residents who leave their cars in the street by ticketing and towing the cars. Also ticket anyone where the Police see snow has been shoveled or blown into the street.
When a storm is coming the news does a good job in informing the Public.
The "Doesn’t Apply To Me" attitude needs to stop in Orland Park that everyone needs to get their cars off the street or not blow the snow into the street.
Public Works does an excellent job in snow removal and then there are huge icy sections where cars were plowed around or the snow has been blown into the street.
|7.||Usually, the street is plowed but not cleared to pavement.|
|8.||Wolf Road is a mess between 159th and 179th. Southwest Highway from 179th going West seems to be better.
I realize that these streets may not be under Orland Park's supervision, but how can Wolf be so bad and Southwest Highway be better??
I live in Brook Hills.
|9.||Once you get into Orland Park the main roads are considerably less maintained than outside of the the village. Especially LaGrange Road. It's been our joke for 20 years that as soon as you see snow on the street you must be in Orland.|
|10.||No they did a great job.|
|12.||The last two snowfalls, my commute home I was unable to stop my car at the intersection and slid through 2 red lights on 159th. I was also unable to turn off 80th ave onto 157th and had to go to Wheeler Drive to get home. Intersections seem to be the worst with snow and ice.|
|13.||overall good removal|
|15.||It's all good!|
|16.||No...I was very impressed by how the Village handled the storm.|
|17.||When driving around town, I was able to get around perfectly!|
|18.||Generally, great job, even in parking lots!|
|19.||all in all they do a great job, but at some intersections like 143rd & 80th it seems more icy.|
|20.||They are great|
|21.||may sure intersections are kept salted|
|22.||Yes, keep up the great work!!|
|23.||The Village is doing a superlative job!|
|24.||Interesting that you are so concerned about our opinions regarding snow removal. Where is the survey regarding the multimillion dollar development with an indiana contractor at 143rd and lagrange? Please stop playing politics.|
|26.||No I think you do the best you can. I would love if the plow didn't throw back the snow from the street in the driveway I shovel. I am not sure if there is a solution besides picking up plow at every driveway and do not think that is reasonable.|
|30.||No suggestions. Thanks for sending out a survey.|
|32.||They do an excellent job|
|33.||I know 159th Street is a state highway, but the part that runs through orland Park on Friday during rush hour was horrible. If they knew the storm was coming were they prepared?|
|34.||More needs to be done.
We live in a business community which means people need to be able to travel without fearing for there lives because the snow isn't being removed to save money. This day & age you would think all the road maintenance divisions would be able to come up with a better way thru technology to manage snow removal Why not work together as a team? You would think if the burden was shared there could be a significant savings. FYI It snows every year.
|36.||Overall I feel the service is good, a lot of drifting occurs on 108Th ave south of 171st. I live in a cul-de-sac and the plow driver this year, so far, seems much better than last year. Last years driver did not plow within 6 feet of the curb. Mail man wouldn't deliver.
Keep up the good work.
|37.||Orland Park is a joke with snow removal. Tinley Park is the best and Orland Park is the worst. This is the only category of City Responsibilities that I can think of where this is the case. We have lived at our current residence in Orland Park since 1997 and before that we grew up in Tinley Park.
Where we live in Orland Park, LaGrange Road is the diving line between Tinley Park and Orland Park. As soon as you cross over into Orland it becomes treturous. I love driving in the snow and have no problem with it. My problem is that there is a large senior contingent in our area who freak out with the snow. It is not uncommon to have to drive under five miles an hour behind a slower panicky driver (there are many) in a 45mph zone. This causes me to have to pass in undesirable conditions. I'm not sure if the problem lies with the amount of passes the trucks make or if it is a salt issue. My suggestion is to send the decision maker over to Tinley Park and have them learn to due what Tinley Park does. I know this isn't too far fetched, because the mayors have been known to collaborate before on projects. At this point anything you do will be better than it is now. Thanks for asking. I hope the truth doesn't sting too much.
|39.||I like the idea of being proactive with having bare streets, however, I've lived here for 8 years & have never seen that. While our streets are paved, it usually takes over 24 hours.|
|40.||Not really. Although one point to note...on Beacon (right off of 143rd street) that road is crazy dangerous as it is a hill (if you are turning onto Beacon) and w/ snow or ice your car can slide backwards toward 143rd. This happens to me each year (I seem to forget each year...I take West Ave after 1st time). This could be a horrible accident waiting to happen. Not sure if more salting would help or not.|
|42.||None other than perhaps have the snow removal available sooner.|
|44.||the last 2 yrs orland snow removal as gone downhill big time. I'm not happy|
|46.||I feel that if it is on a normal workweek it should be plowed immediately so that after school pick up is smoother and those coming home are not stuck in traffic. Lagrange was aweful it took my husband close to an hour to get from carlsandburg high school to 151st due to the bad conditions on the road and the snow not being plowed.|
|47.||My street was not plowed for at least 36 hrs afyrt the 1/13 snow but was plowed w/in 24 hrs after the 1/20 snow|
|48.||Use more salt so the streets won't be slippery.|
|50.||I have a friend in Countryside who told me that a truck comes by and clears the driveway for seniors that have signed up for it free of charge. You can pay to have your driveway done, but find it difficult to clear the end of the driveway after the plows go down the streets again.|
|52.||It is all good.|
|55.||not right now|
|57.||Cul De Sacs take longer to plow "completely". However, in the interim, can a plow make a "one pass" to make a path that will help us get most of the way to our driveway (path down the cener of the Cul De Sac)?|
|61.||The snow removal in Orland Park is very efficient and I very much appreciate the focus on clearing and salting the streets in a timely and efficient manner.|
|63.||Would they be able to put a little more salt closer to the driveways to help melt the snow & make it a little easier to get out of our driveway & be a little easier to shovel the snow that has been pushed toward the driveway?|
|64.||Our streets never seem to be fully cleared. I understand that your busy and have a lot of streets to clean but our street seems to be the one of the last ones touched. I can't understand why 151st Street isn't touched between 88th ave and 82nd Ave until later in the day either. East of 82nd ave and West of 88th Ave is always clear of snow but between the 2 streets is the worst place to travel during any snow fall|
|66.||No, I'm generally pleased with the snow removal in Orland Park.|
|68.||All in all - a pretty good job I think.|
|69.||The snow was piled extremely high right in front of my driveway. I had already shoveled twice and the had to clear 2 feet of snow blocking my driveway later. I was extremely angry!|
|70.||When the weather forecast/news foresees a snowstorm, have the trucks out right before it starts to salt the streets. This way hopefully some of the snow melts initially & it's easier/ faster to keep up with later.|
|71.||None at this time|
|74.||Would be great if some of the smaller streets were cleared sooner, but understand that major roads are a priority. Snow just becomes packed, creating ice, slick roads, etc. when not cleared quickly.|
|75.||doing a hreat job!! Thanks|
|79.||I personally believe that your opinion questionaires are a real waste of tax payer money. You also have an opinion questionaire in the Orland Park Prairie, which I follow very closely. As far as I can see, none of the answers you receive make any differance all! I've lived in Orland Township for twenty- two years and some things never change, such as the flooding problem on the roadway between Wolf Road and Creek Crossing Drive, on 143rd street. It was like that when I moved here, and it still floods "every" time we have an above average rain fall. Our village hall seems to believe it is more important to install bicycle paths on 151st street and round-abouts at a time when economically we cannot afford them! Someones priorities are really screwed up! It's just like question #5 in this survey, if the plows plow the snow to the right, and more snow ends up on one side of the road than the other, what are you going to do about it, have the driver re-distribute the snow? Get real!|
|81.||I live on Meadowview Court and would like to know why it takes so long for a snow plow to make an initial clearance? When they do eventually come, it appears they do not come back for a very long time. I've lived in Orland Park near 15 years and my previous residence was plowed sooner & more often.|
|83.||I live in marley creek and feel that our subdivision is usually last to be plowed. Marley creek blvd going into/out of the subdivision is a nightmare in snow storms due to the steep slope. This dangerous intersection should be higher on the priority list. My friend live at approximately 167th and Stuart ave. in unincorporated orland park and her street is always plowed before mine.
I used to live in oak forest and the streets in oak forest were always plowed immediately and often.
|84.||I appreciate the village asking my opinion. Continue the great work.|
|85.||We hope there is more of a focus on major intersections and key locations instead of clearing every neighborhood street right away. After living in many different states, it's a little disappointing that snow is removed SO quickly here from our neighborhood streets.|
|87.||No. It's fine as far as I'm concerned.|
|89.||My experience has been that they do a good job. Keep up the good work.|
|90.||Improvement would be more up to date info on cleaning efforts. Like posting when a street has been cleaned.|
|92.||We need more salt, and this year seems to be slower than usual for the village. My subdivision is usually last, but even when I had to go to work Orland Park streets we terrible this year. The 38 years I have lived in the village, I can't remember them ever being this bad.|
|94.||Yes, please tell the drivers to SLOW DOWN! For God's Sake, they fly down the street at an unsafe speed and DEFINITELY NOT the speedlimit!|
|96.||It's fine, but I would worry about bare pavement in bigger snow events and not freak out about 2 in snowfalls|
|98.||I think the Village does a good job.|
|99.||Overall a very good job|
|100.||it is usually pretty good, but this last fall was particularly bad - disappointed|
|101.||NO I am Happy, I believe Orland Park is doing a great job keeping streets clear!|
|102.||Keep up good work I went into chicago on sunday and side streets were still
|103.||I am proud to live in this efficient town!|
|104.||snow removal has been very good|
|105.||No issues. I feel that it is handled great.|
|106.||I feel the streets were not cleared as quickly during the last storm as they have been in the past.|
|107.||The Village should implement some type of snow removal supervision to its "bare pavement" policy to make this policy exceptionally successful. It would include having a few select supervisors/drivers to drive around sections of the Village to make sure the streets are to bare pavement within the 24hour goal. This is to manage snow plows more effectively.|
|108.||Try to avoid shoveling snow onto the driveway. It is very frustrating to just finish cleaning driveway and then the truck comes through and puts snow and "rocks of snow" onto the driveway.|
|111.||None, keep up the good work|
|112.||Why do cul de sacs get prefered treatment? Sure there are more driveways per foot of street but there is less street. I would certainly like less snow at the end of my driveway too.
Also what is the cost of the bare pavement policy compared to intersection and busy street focus. The survey doesn't give enough information.
Overall I think the snow removal is properly run currently. However, I don't know if this is a bare pavement policy method or not.
Keep up the good work!
|113.||The village does a good job w/ the mail roads but needs to do better on the neighborhood streets.|
|114.||I prefer the most cost effective way since our taxes have gone up so much over the past 2 years.|
|115.||Overall, pretty good|
