ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - As another storm bears down on upstate New York, finding a place to put all that snow is becoming a problem for homeowners, plowing contractors and public works crews.

Although the latest storm isn’t expected to hit western New York, Rochester has been one of the snowiest cities in the upstate region this winter, receiving about six feet of snow so far. That has resulted in large piles of snow lining the streets and roads in the area, making it difficult for motorists to see oncoming traffic at intersections.

Officials in East Rochester tell WHAM-TV (https://bit.ly/1ePVaPx ) that many of the large snowbanks are the result of private plowing contractors putting the snow where they shouldn’t. The town of Greece says piling snow on the streets and sidewalks is illegal and could result in a $100 fine.
