City and county offices announced they would be closed today. A Logansport City Council meeting scheduled for this evening has been postponed, according to Mayor Ted Franklin. The new date is yet to be determined.
“Right now, trash pickup is one day behind,” Franklin said. “It wouldn’t surprise me to see two days, but it’s all going to depend upon the weather.”
Logansport Municipal Utilities offices are also closed today, he added. Emergency services, like police and fire crews, remain on duty.
City street crews worked overtime Sunday to keep roads somewhat driveable, paying special attention to hills, Franklin said. A team of firefighters certified to drive some of the eight city dump trucks have agreed to help out too, he said.
“We should be able to keep the trucks running for 24 hours, until we get the streets completely cleared,” Franklin said.
