Snow removal has beena big job this winter
I would like to express a sincere thank you to everyone who helped clear roads after the snow storm of Jan. 5 and 6. The employees of the Cass County Highway Department worked long hours in very harsh conditions to make sure emergencies were handled, and then to open roads, many of which were plugged with drifts of 5 to 6 feet or higher. The mechanics in our shop worked feverishly to keep vehicles running in the extreme cold, resulting in all personnel being placed in a piece of equipment with minimal delay. And our office staff dealt with hundreds of calls, some from individuals who were less than cordial or patient.
To the volunteer fire department and other businesses who allowed us to pull a truck into bay for a quick thaw or repair, and to those individuals or businesses in the local agriculture community who used their own equipment to open a road or assist a highway vehicle, we say a sincere thank you. And especially to the City of Logansport’s Department of Public Works for offering their assistance in the county after the city streets were opened, we express many thanks. The city and county street and highway departments enjoy a good working relationship which was evident during the storm.
We would also like to thank the Cass County EMA, sheriff’s department and central dispatch employees who worked closely with us through the event. Finally, a thank you goes to those citizens of Cass County who did heed the advice, and for a time, the order, to stay off of roads until they were opened. Progress is much faster when plow vehicles can work on opening roads instead of responding to stranded vehicles, which delays overall cleanup and prevents that road from being opened until the vehicle is removed.
