WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SNOW:

-A A +A
By Jamie Baker-Nantz

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SNOW:

Grant County Judge-Executive Darrell Link said the county takes care of 240 miles or roads not including those in Corinth and Crittenden that the county cleans.

He said to date about $75,000 has been spent on salt, sand and cinders.

Link said he’s never declared a Level III emergency which means that travel is restricted to emergency personnel or work, snow removal or for an emergency.

“We can’t mandate that any person stay home from work, but people need to exercise good judgement,” Link said.

These are the levels used by Link:

• Level l - Roadways are hazardous with blowing and/or drifting snow.

• Level ll - A level two snow emergency means that the road conditions are a little worse and only motorists whose travel is necessary should be on the roadways.

• Level lll - All roadways are restricted to emergency personnel use only, for travel to work, for provisions, medical supplies or medical treatment and snow removal operations.
