BY REBECCA BENNETT — During the Jan. 22 to 24 blizzard that dumped more than 26 inches of snow on the City of Hyattsville, city staff worked with NZI Construction to assist with moving snow from roads to another location.  The Hyattsville City Council approved the payment of a $30,000 invoice by NZI for those services on Feb. 16.

“Without assistance from NZI Construction, [the Department of Public Works] would have had difficulty ensuring roads were cleared and passable while at the same time relocating large volumes of snow,” a city memo said.
