In anticipation of the forecast for significant snow accumulation, we would like to make the citizens of the Town of Pulaski aware of the following change(s) to our normal snow removal procedures.
Due to the harsh snow storms in the northeastern area, the Town of Pulaski along with many other localities have not had our salt orders filled. The larger cities and Departments of Transportation nationwide take priority over municipalities as far as how/when the salt is delivered.
Public Works crews will begin snow removal efforts immediately. However, we will not be putting down salt until the end of the snow fall in an effort to maximize its capabilities and use it in the most efficient manner possible. If we receive the forecasted accumulation, we will be working primarily to keep the main highways open and clear. These streets will include Rt. 11, Rt. 99, E. Main St, Bob White Blvd. and Memorial Drive.
Town crews will continue to remove snow throughout the night as necessary, but the main streets will be our PRIMARY focus during that time. If the accumulation is within normal range, town crews will be dispersed to their individual routes simultaneously. If accumulation is significant, we will not move into secondary and residential areas until Thursday morning or when the snow fall has ended. Again, we will still refrain from putting down salt until the end of the snow storm as we are in very limited supply.
We would like to take this opportunity to suggest that citizens not be on the road unless it is absolutely necessary during this snow fall period. If you must be out, please use caution and keep as much distance as possible between your vehicle and snow removal equipment for the safety of all. Also, if off street parking is available, we ask that you please utilize it in an effort to provide the necessary space for our snow removal equipment to enter/exit streets as safely as possible.
We appreciate your patience and understanding of this issue and apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause to town citizens.
