Ald. Lyle! Streets and San! Help!

The 7600 alley between Vernon and Eberhart has not been flattened. Was it skipped from some reason? I'm in the middle of the block and need to get several children to and from school.

Today on the FB page another man vents about not being able to get through his alley
All I want to know is why haven't the city been down my alley with a truck to make track's. I am at 75th and Perry. My car is stuck in the garage and I can't get 100 feet without getting stuck. We have atleast an average of 3ft. with a high of atleast 5ft. I need to get supplies for my family not to mention take my... children to daycare and get to work on monday.

In addition I have posted additional pictures of an alley in the Blizzard pics album. Check out the comments there. Ald. Lyle even chimed in on alley clean-up:
Yesterday the City cleared 150 alleys, pulled garbage from 32 alleys, opened streets and intersections. They continue to work today to clear more alleys. The ward extends from 67th & Green to 99 & Cottage, so there are a lot of alleys to clear.
It appears help is on the way, but it may well take some time.

BTW, the alley of which I have been taking pics well it was halfway cleared thanks to a private contractor. A nice family on that block paid $500 for their services. Of course thanks to a van that has been parking back there more work needs to be done to clear that alley, yet.
