The city is also fully stocked with over 15,000 tons of salt.

Leaders are asking for full cooperation from residents so workers can clear streets.

“During a winter storm we strongly advise people who do not have to travel to stay at home,” said Mayor Brandon Scott.”

The mayor says residents should tune into local news stations and visit the city snow page for updated information during inclement weather. The site also shows which streets and what order streets are treated in the city.
