Not sure if this guy is legit or not, but he cleared the Woodland St. bridge over the Mass Pike. That bridge, connecting northern neighborhoods in Auburndale to Williams Elementary School and Lasell Neighborhood, is under state management and so not Newton's responsibility. Icy bridge sidewalks here, developing from lack of timely shoveling, effectively bar kids from walking to school.
To go from gonzo to legit, Neighborhood councils could organize volunteers to fill these gaps in public sidewalk coverage.
