Snow Clearing Update
2/22/2015

Snow Clearing Update

Due to the nature of yesterday's drawn-out snowfall, snow clearing crews had to repeatedly treat the arterial/main roadways (i.e. Hamilton Road, Rt. 62, etc.) to keep them passable throughout the day. This delayed the treatment of other roadways, including courts. Our snow crews have been working around the clock to clear streets. Currently, we have 12 snow plows running and we believe that every street and court will be addressed by this evening.
