The City has provided the following update on the snow storm:

“The heaviest snow of the storm is now falling over our area. We are currently measuring just 2” with the majority of that falling in the past two hours. The heavy falling snow should be ending in the next hour or so with additional snow showers until noon. Our storm total should be around 2.5 to 3 inches. 

The Main road and primary routes were kept clear overnight and crews also had a chance to make passes thru most of residential streets. The heavy snow started about 4:30 am. which has recovered most of the roads. Cleanup will continue all day and shou.ld be complete by 7p.m.”
