The Latest From The City- Monday, 9:45 a.m.

Snow removal efforts in the City have changed due to the new snow overnight. Plows are back on the City’s snow emergency routes and major arterials.

In the residential areas, crews have finished plowing on the South Hill. Work also is proceeding downtown. Crews “racked” the snow to the center of the street, creating large berms and are using industrial snow blowers and dump trucks to remove the berms. All that snow is then dumped at the City's Operations Complex.

Browne’s Addition will be plowed on Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 23 and 24. North-south streets in Browne’s Addition will be plowed on Tuesday, and east-west streets on Wednesday. Plowing will begin at 9 a.m. each day. Because the streets are so narrow, cars must be moved from the streets or they will be towed.
