Mayor Tony Young gives an update on the Campbellsville Planning Session rescheduled for this Thursday, February 26th at 6:00PM
The Campbellsville Water Company and Street Department have been working diligently in frigid temperatures getting our City back in order. They are currently repairing a broken water line at the intersection of Broadway and North Columbia Avenue. The Campbellsville Street Department has been working all hours to try and keep the streets safe and clean.
The Campbellsville City Hall and the Campbellsville Water Company offices will be open on the regular schedule tomorrow, Wednesday, February 18, 2015.
Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young has declared a citywide emergency in response to the winter storm.
This storm system is still dumping snow across the city and temperatures are forecast to drop further. Most of the area has received in excess of 10 inches of snow, which makes it the worst storm in recent memory.
The mayor is encouraging citizens to check on elderly neighbors.
City’s road crews are trying to keep up with the snow as it quickly covers roads that have already been plowed. All of our resources are being used to keep our streets open. Street crews are focusing on plowing instead of salting.
Pavement temperatures are below the point of salt’s effectiveness. Also, when plowing is repeated, the salt that was applied gets scraped away.
The mayor says travel isn’t advised, but anyone who has to be out should slow down, buckle up and maintain a distance of at least 500 feet between vehicles. He said crews are planning to work all night.
Our Street Department employees are working continuously to clear our streets. They are plowing streets and will apply salt as they continue to make our roads safe to travel.
Our Sanitation Crews are working to pickup trash as roads are cleared and made safe to pass. The trash pickupschedules may be adjusted based on the safety of the roads. Please continue to set out your trashcans. They will get your trash as soon as possible.
Our Emergency Services are taking necessary precautions to continue Emergency Medical, Police, Fire and Rescue services during these extreme weather conditions.
Please stay at home today this storm is not over. Please use extreme caution if you must get out during this winter storm. Whenever drivers are approaching a “Stop” or an intersection, shift your vehicle into “Neutral” to assist stopping without sliding.
Please check on your neighbors to make sure they are doing okay.
Please be careful and stay home.
