Since the snow has not yet disappeared, and isn’t expected to for awhile, Public Works Director, Leon Hobson shared the snow removal process with the commission.

During the most recent snow storm, where 11.2 inches fell in a 24 hour period, crews were out till midnight on Tuesday, and returned as early as four o’clock the next morning.

Hobson mentioned weather conditions often alter the plans and the routes. If visibility is bad, it is not safe for crews to continue clearing roads.

This storm in particular cost the county $78,000.
