NORTH HAMPTON - A homeowner says state winter cleanup crews have some explaining to do after they allegedly destroyed parts of a historic wall, lights, statues and trees that surround the front of his ocean-side home on Ocean Boulevard.
Rouzbeh Yassini contacted NH1 News after he says the state piled excessive snow and boulders of ice into his yard.
The snowbanks in his front yard are almost triple the height of the snowbanks on the other side of the street, which borders the Atlantic Ocean.
"On the left hand side of the street, they are 15 ft. tall that the state of New Hampshire dumped the snow," Yassini said. "And on the right hand side, where you see there's about 4 to 5 ft. Big difference. And it's only been happening a stretch of 3 miles between Rye and North Hampton, nowhere else."
Now, he says his landscape is nearly destroyed - covered with snow crews picked up off Route 1A.
Yassini said the state's response was also disappointing.
"We will fix what we need to fix, but I was deeply disappointed with the State of New Hampshire to see they violated my privacy - came 12 to 15 ft. inside my property, over the wall, and dumping this stuff inside [near] the house and damaging everything," he said. "And when I called, I expected an apology - the message was ‘no, that's a snow drift.' When I showed him pictures - the message came clear - that is no snow drift."
