City streets slick in spots


Posted By: Morning Newsroom

Commuters will want to be careful on the way to work this morning.  The falling snow on Wednesday has left main streets slick in spots and most neighborhood roads snow packed.  

Officials said 19 trucks hit the roads around 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday to spread salt.  Public Works Snow Center officials said much of the process began before the snow even started to fall.  "City crews began preparing Tuesday by applying salt brine to bridges and intersections to speed the melting process," Diane Gonzolas said.  

Officials said you won't see trucks plowing every street.  They said crews will only be plowing areas where the snow has drifted.  There is no parking ban in effect.   If you have any questions on city snow operations, you can call The Public Works Snow Center at 441-7644.
