The county is responsible for 900 miles -- and when we have a major snowstorm -- it challenges our resources.

 

Chris Doty, the Director of the County Road Department says they had every road crew person working to clear the roads.

 

"It's the first mile and last mile that is the most difficult to traverse. Generally, the main routes are open fairly quickly, but getting in and out of your house can be difficult.  And we appreciate the patience people were able to give us this last weekend."

 

Doty says the county plows major roadways connected to county roads and state highways first.  Then they plow intersections where vehicles need to stop and finally they plow residential areas.
