A Pittsburgh City Council task force’s long-awaited interview with Public Safety Director Michael Huss regarding February’s snow emergency focused today on problems with communications, tire chains and electricity at city facilities.
It also had its testy moments.
Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak reminded Mr. Huss that she had asked him seven times to meet with her Task Force on Emergency Operations and Snow Preparedness before issuing the subpoena that finally prompted his attendance.
Huss of course had a reply, forgetting that as an appointed public official, he is responsible to the elected public officials whose job it is to represent the interests of the voters.
Read the whole thing yourself, I’m just too flabbergasted at the combination of incompetence and arrogance that Huss shows. Not to mention his obvious contempt for the City Council.
But remember, it was all just the paramedics’ fault, not bad or no planning by those in charge.
