From the Daily News:
Hizzoner opposes all 16 bills the Council introduced after holding an unprecedented eight hearings following the devastating Dec. 26, 2010, blizzard.
Among the Council bills is a measure to suspend meter collections whenever there's enough snow to suspend alternate side parking.
Other proposals would require the city to shovel bus shelters and pedestrian crossings, force the administration to call a snow emergency when amid whiteout conditions and release more details about which streets get plowed first.
During a hearing on the measures Wednesday, Bloomberg operations director Liz Weinstein ticked off a long list of reasons why each bill wasn't necessary.
The mayor is already implementing a 15-point plan that he says is sufficient to avoid the perilous mistakes that left streets unplowed for days and ambulances stranded in snow banks.
But as Weinstein testified against each of the 16 bills, Council members looked incredulous.
Other members railed that the insights they gleaned from hours of talking to their constituents had been ignored.
