NYC says it's met goal to plow every street

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City's Sanitation Department says it has met its goal of plowing every street at least once.
Spokesman Keith Mellis says the roads were passable by 7 a.m. Thursday. That's the deadline the agency set after a post-Christmas blizzard dropped 20 inches of snow on the city.
Mellis says Thursday's goal is to "keep working on the streets" to further clear them. He says works are "actively plowing and hauling during the course of the day."
He says the department also will place snow melters throughout the city to begin clearing large mounds of plowed snow.
Television news reports this morning suggest streets in some neighborhoods remain covered. NBC's "Today" show reported from one such block in Brooklyn.
Mellis says the agency has received a few calls of missed streets and would investigate.
