"Where is Charles?" --- Today, Charles wanted to check out how the county prepares for snow on our roads! He helped us conduct our 'County Service Commercial' interview!

Our Public Works- Roads & Bridges Department was busy preparing for tonights snow. They were busy preparing the vehicles, brining the roads, making sure the trucks were filled with salt, but we were able to catch up with them. We ran into Paul who took a moment to talk with us. - Did you know we have approximately 365 lane miles one way? During snow plowing events some lanes take numerous plows to push snow off the roadway. In reality, during a snow event our drivers and contractors can log thousands of miles. Melissa DeCastro
