Acting Public Works Director John Isensee said he consulted with Rivera by phone throughout the day yesterday, as the snow mounted past a foot. He said he has not spoken to Lantigua in at least 10 days.
Lantigua could not be reached yesterday.
Isensee also said he would be coordinating the 80 plows and other pieces of snow removal equipment and the 100 contractors and city employees into the morning.
“This is the mayor’s first storm,” Isensee said. “You think I’m leaving that to chance?”
