Snow Storm Update and News
Wednesday, December 4, 2013
Snow crews will continue to work in full force through Wednesday night to ensure key roadways throughout the city are safe for travel. The priorities for snow removal will be the higher traffic arterials and collector streets as well as the downtown area.
Additional accumulation of snow and ice is forecasted to be minimal, but temperatures will remain very cold. Snow clearing operations will continue through Thursday morning to ensure that school routes, bridges/overpasses, and hills or shaded areas are safe for auto traffic.

Trash is currently on schedule for the Thursday pickup.
