Conditions were fair. Not as good as in the past.
Somewhat better than other eastside areas.
Suffered some damage to car after sliding on a patch of road ice.

2. Response was pathetic by the city, businesses, and residents. The roads were in horrible shape and the sidewalks were unusable in most areas.
3. I thought that the roads were comparable or worse and that is not acceptable for the amount of tax dollars we pay to live here.
4. No

2. Response - no. Completely disappointing response based on our tax rate and in light of recent article that Bexley purchased a lot of salt from Columbus at a cheaper rate. What were they waiting for?
3. Conditions in Bexley were worse than surrounding areas. I was also surprised that there was no plowing yesterday to clearn the slush before it froze again today. Pitiful
4. No damage suffered.

1. Bexley resident. 2. The plowing occurred very late, cut-throughs were completely blocked for Bryden Rd for several days. Roads stayed bad. 3. Bexley streets much worse, especially Roosevelt and Fair. 4. No damage to car.

Bexley resident
Conditions were OK - I thought there would have been a bit more plowing, but I guess they did the best they could
Better than other eastside areas because those residential streets receive little to no attention
No damage

Bexley Resident >25 yrs

NO not at all

Why would I worry more about outside Bexley where I pay these high taxes?

No damage; just continuous frustration. Why not plow the side streets and alleys before the next ice/snow storm? What are we doing all day when our streets are dangerous to walk/drive on?
I have had it!!!!

Bexley Resident -
2. Plowing could have definitely been better, but it seemed like this response was better than earlier storms of the season. Still seems like service has been worse than in years past.
3. Roads seemed to be noticeably better than adjacent Columbus and Whitehall streets.
4. No damage.
