MAYOR EMANUEL BRIEFED SATURDAY ON CITY PREPAREDNESS FOR SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL
Mayor Rahm Emanuel was briefed this afternoon by Department of Streets and Sanitation Commissioner Charles Williams at Snow Command on the City’s preparedness for this weekend’s snow and ice removal operations.
“Mother Nature has been kind to us so far, and our snow plow drivers and City crews have, and will continue to do a tremendous job throughout the winter to keep our streets paved, plowed and passable,” said Mayor Emanuel. “City crews remain on alert and are prepared to respond to snowfall again overnight and tomorrow.”
Safety is the City’s top priority, and motorists are urged to be patient and cautious when driving during inclement weather, and to drive according to the conditions.
