I would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents and property owners for their assistance and cooperation in removal of the snow and ice this past week. Many individuals provided hard work with their shovels, trucks and tractors in clearing portions of the county roads before our equipment was able to get to their roads. People taking their time to be good neighbors allowed our employees to move from road to road sooner. The thickness of the sleet and freezing rain slowed our progress even though the crews began working early Tuesday through Saturday to improve the roadways. Your efforts were appreciated.
