AKRON, Ohio — Residents in Akron will have the chance to tell the city what went wrong during a recent snowstorm that left residential streets unplowed and school buses stuck in the snow, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

Marilyn Keith, Ward 9 councilwoman, will lead six meetings spread across the city to gather information from residents about what could be done better next time.

The meetings are part of a task force created to dissect the slow effort to plow the city’s residential streets, which remained buried under a foot of snow last month.

The meetings will be held:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 12 6-7:30 p.m., Lawton Community Center, 1225 Lawton St.

• Wednesday, 10-11:30 a.m., Ellet Community Center, 2449 Wedgewood Drive

• Wednesday, 6-7:30 p.m., Kenmore Community Center, 880 Kenmore Blvd.

• Thursday, 10-11:30 a.m., Firestone Park Community Center, 1480 Girard St.

• Feb. 21, 10-11:30 a.m., Patterson Park Community Center, 800 Patterson Ave.

• Feb. 26, 10-11:30 a.m., Northwest Community Center, 1730 Shatto Ave.

Anyone unable to attend the six public forums may email concerns and suggestions to Keith at .
