City Manager's Message 02/24/15: More Snow & Wednesday Delayed Opening

Posted on February 27, 2015 at 1:59 PM by Mary Bunting

Just a quick update for those of you who access city email during the evenings or early mornings...

Today we were surprised with quite a bit more snow than had been predicted. Projections has suggested less than a half of inch of snow. When it became clear we would get more than that, we closed community centers and libraries early.

As we look at tomorrow, we believe it is best to delay opening of our facilities until 10 am. Public Works, and our safety professionals, all currently believe that we can have safe main roads and parking lots by this time. Please note that parking lots may nevertheless be somewhat slushy so we advise that employees wear appropriate clothing and shoes.

If, for any reason, we get into the morning hours and determine our estimates are wrong, we will update you with a later opening time. However, we truly believe a 10 am opening is appropriate.

We will offer liberal leave for those employees who need or desire to stay home and off the streets. Please remember to coordinate liberal leave with your designated departmental point of contact.
