City Crews Completing Plowing and Treating Streets Today, Thurs., Feb. 3

The City’s crews are plowing and treating residential streets today, Thurs., Feb. 3, and now expect to be completed by 7 p.m. tonight. Refreezing of melted snow is possible overnight and residents should use caution while driving. Crews are expecting to complete some additional clean-up of primary streets on Friday, Feb. 4, due to blowing and drifting snow. Even after plowing and treating, some pavements will remain packed with snow. Warmer temperatures and sun Friday afternoon and into the weekend will help with additional melting.
