As soon as the crews finish plowing operations they will begin treating streets
with salt. The forecast is calling for extremely cold temperatures Thursday
night through Friday. This will limit the effectiveness of any treatment to the
streets so expect slippery driving conditions until warmer weather arrives
If you have to travel please do so with extreme caution and give snow removal
crews space while traveling.
If there are any questions or concerns contact Street Superintendent Walt
Landers at 217-732-4655.
