City's Streets department staying busy plowing roads

Plow

City Public Works Director Chuck Sliva wants Columbus to know the team running the plows throughout town is keeping at it despite some adversity.

"With the amount of snow and ice underneath, the plowing process has been a struggle. We have been falling behind somewhat in the residential areas simply due to the snow depth and ice. At the end of today, we hope to have all roads at least open with the first initial pass through all neighborhoods," Sliva said on Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2024.

"With the blowing of snow, some in the outlying areas will need follow-up passes in the next couple of days. We will most likely be running second passes through the whole town doing clean up as people move parked vehicles from the streets. Please be advised vehicles must be removed from windrows 12 hours. after windrow was created. As far as plows plugging clean driveways, it is unavoidable during the snow plowing of streets."

The snowy days and nights in Columbus don't look to be ending in the near future, according to the National Weather Service. The entity is predicting Columbus has a 40% chance of snow Wednesday afternoon, with the possibility for more on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Friday, the high is projected at 6°F and on Saturday the high is estimated to be 0 °F.
