Ann Arbor's snow
troubles continue

By JASON ADKINS

4.

Last week's snow storms threatened
to bring Ann Arbor to a standstill, and
the city agencies responsible for
keeping the streets clear still have a
long way to go before the roads are dry.
With more snow predicted, officials
of these agencies say they find them-
selves battling both poor weather con-
ditions and inadequate budgets. Car
owners are not much better off.
According to city Transportation
Director John Robbins, 63 percent of
the-$336,000 allocated to clear ice and
snow from city streets had been spent
by last Wednesday. Storms later in the
week forced road-clearance crews to
work overtime to clear major streets,
and many side streets are still covered
with snow.
DRIVERS WHO park their cars on
the streets in areas designated for snow
removal during a snow emergency are
fined $20 by the city, accoridng to Steve
Hendel, deputy controller.
The city plows the side of the streets
with odd-numlered houses on odd
dates, and the even side on even-
numbered days. Cars in the way are
towed from their parking places - in
which they have often been buried by
mounds of build-up from previous
plowing - and then returned when
clearance is completed.
s "I'm having a good time," said Larry
Cooch, while working as a lift operator
on the road-clearing crew. "Doesn't it
look like fun?"
Michael Scott, manager of the city's
.parking system, said the system nor-
mally operates within its budget, but
this year some expense overruns may
occur.

According to Scott, extra revenue
should be generated by the city's-'
parking structures, which will be used .'
more often by car owners who normally,
park in the street. "We've cleared the',
roofs of the parking structurs, worrying.
about the weight problem, so there's
plenty of room for parking there," he
said.
Transportation Director Robbins
suggested "people get their cars off the
streets. That sure makes our work a lot
easier." He added that it would save
drivers the $20 fine they would other-
wise be charged every other day under
the snow emergency conditions, which
are still in effect.
Up to five tow trucks, one large,
double-bladed snow plow, and several
parking enforcement officials compose
the snow-clearance unit. Officials direct
the removal of parked vehicles and
handle traffic flows.
Last year, there was a great deal of
confusion over what side of the street
was being plowed on which day. Even
Mayor Louis Belcher managed to
misquote the ordinance on one oc-
casion. This year there have been very
few complaints, Robbins said.

By LISA SPECTOR
Having won what they said was a battle
with City Hall, a group of students
spred across campus this week in a
drive to register students to vote.
Organizers of the massive
registration drive, which is being held
in campus dormitories and buildings,
say they hope to increase the political
clout of students by increasing the
number of students who can vote in the
city in time for the April city elections.
REPRESENTATIVES from several
student groups, including the Ann Ar-
bor Tenant's Union and the LSA-
Student Government, met last month
with city officials to ask that classes
held by the city to deputize students so
that they may register other students to
vote. City officials had cancelled the
classes because they said the city could
no longer afford to offer the training.
But City Administrator Terry Sprenkel
agreed to reopen the classes last month
after meeting with several student
leaders.
. But, though the changes at City Hall
delayed the students' plans to register
voters this year, the student organizers
say this week's drive has been very
successful.
"IT WAS A long battle, but we got
what we asked for," said Gwynne
Kostin, a member of the AATU who
helped plan the drive. Kostin said the
turnout so far has been very good.
"We're cranking it out, said David
DeVarti, one of the student registrars
and a former staff member of the
Public Interest Research Group in
Michigan, one of several groups coor-
dinating the drive. "We will do more
than the city expects us,"DeVarti said,
and "we're easily going to do 1,000."
"It's better than I expected," said
senior Chris Kolb, who was also
registering students at Markley Mon-
day night. He said that a group of the
student registrars also plans to go door-
to-door in low-income neighborhoods on
(Saturday mornings in coming weeks in
an effort to register other city residents

who might not otherwise vote.
Winifred Northcross, a city official
who coordinated the city's classes for
the new student registrars, said the
classes this year went well despite the
changes, and "the students seemed at-
tentive and interested."
