Feb 2014 - We would like to ask the public for patience as we continue through the snow season. This time of year blowing and drifting snow poses a considerable challenge. Windy conditions will cause roads to become snow covered and then the winds will change directions resulting in even more snow covered roads. This combined with more direct sunlight causes the snow to stick to the road resulting in a difficult time of year.
We are using all available resources to keep the roads as open and clear as possible. Operators are working many hours of overtime toward this end. Even with this effort, operators are only able to plow the 324 miles of county roads twice per day with a little more in some areas.
