I live in Waverly on a side street that is certainly wide enough for a plow truck to come though. However, we have yet to be plowed since the blizzard, and everyone's cars are still stuck. I called 311 days ago and received a confirmation number; I have just put in a new request at 311 online and got a new confirmation number. My neighbors and I would get out and shovel the entire street, but there is just too much; furthermore, don't I pay property taxes for this kind of thing? I understand that it has been a terrible storm, and I have been told repeatedly by newscasters to "be patient," but this is getting ridiculous.

The campaign for a new building in Waverly began in 2003 when the school board decided to expand the elementary school to serve middle school students as well. Eventually, city officials promised, those students would move into a new building to rival the high-performing Roland Park Middle, which they would have attended.
