The large amounts of snow, broken water mains, freezing of snow and ice has hampered the city’s removal of snow.  Good intentions from  those with snow plows have covered up fire hydrants, which caused delays in the snow removal as we had to attend to uncovering those first, for public safety.  We also experienced snow being pushed back into the street once the City cleaned it.  City crews have been out all hours of the night and weekends attending to the snow and  also with the county crews , The honor camp and community service  pitching in.  We are asking, if possible, to move snow to your property. The city is does not have the man power and or equipment to handle the large amounts of snow.  Banding together as a community, helping our neighbors  and patience this winter will make this needed moisture bearable. Thank you,  Mayor Van Camp
