12/19/2009 – 12/20/2009 Snow Storm Update
Updated on 12/21/2009 at 9:30 A.M.
As of this morning (12/21/2009), all township roads have been plowed and salted with the exception of the roads that were plowed by our contractors. The contractors only have plowing capability and were not able to salt. We are currently salting all of the township roads that were plowed by our contractors. With sunshine forecast for all of today, we expect all township roads to be down to black pavement very soon.

All snow has ended. We received a total snow accumulation of 15 inches (more in some locations). Township plows and salt trucks have cleared the primary roads which are now in very good shape. They will be clearing off the slush from the primary roads before temperatures drop below freezing tonight.
Contractor plows entered the secondary/neighborhood streets this morning (12/20/2009) around 04:00 AM. Township plows entered the secondary/neighborhood streets around 06:00 AM (they were previously working on the primaries). It will take us at least 24 hours to plow all of the secondary/neighborhood streets. That is a best case scenario providing we don’t have equipment breakdown. With the best case scenario, we should have all secondary roads plowed by 06:00 AM Monday (12/21/2209) morning.
The sun is currently shining and we expect it to help us considerably to melt any snow that remains on plowed roads prior to nightfall. At nightfall, temperatures will drop into the mid to low 20’s; consequently, roads could be icy in spots. Anyone driving on the roads tonight should exercise caution.
