Harris Township, Centre County, Pa- With the anticipation of a winter snowstorm that could be on the way, many areas are looking to be prepared.
That includes crews in Harris Township who are stocking up on different ice and snow clearing salts, so they’re ready to go whenever the snowflakes start to fall.
“Right now we’re in the process of hauling in anti-skid and stocking our salt bins so that we are ready to go,” said Amy Farkas, Manager of Harris Township.
The township will have all hands on deck to help clear roads for the anticipated snowfall. On Thursday afternoon, the crew was relaxing so they can be ready to be out late in the coming days, if needed.
“Our crews are certainly resting up, we have 5 public works guys that will be maintaining the roads during the snowstorms,” Farkas said.
What can you do to help the crew? Move your car off the street when the snow starts. It’s a township ordinance if more than two inches of snow is in the forecast. Doing this will also help make the roads more passable.
“It’s purely a safety measure for us. We want to be able to clear curb to curb and get those roads opened up as soon as we can…. it’s easier to do if we don’t have cars on the street,” Farkas said.
