SILVER SPRING, Md. – No matter what you call it – Snowmageddon, Snowpocalypse, Snoverkill – the region struggled to get through the heavy snows of last winter. But did some people have it worse than others?

Montgomery County Council member Nancy Navarro says she was hit with a storm of calls and e-mails from District 4 residents who felt, well, dumped upon.

Residents in Burtonsville, Aspen Hill, Fairland, Wheaton and White Oak complained that other neighborhoods got attention during the storms before they did. Was that so?

Public works officials said crews were deployed as needed. There was no special treatment for anyone area.

In order for people to understand how the county deals with snow removal, Navarro is hosting a public forum, which will touch upon a number of topics, including lessons learned from last year’s record snowfalls.

The forum will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17 at the Eastern Regional Services Center in Silver Spring.
