Youngstown gearing up to combat snow storm effects

YOUNGSTOWN

Deputy Director of Public Works Charles Shasho says the city will be issuing a parking ban shortly as they get ready to tackle what is predicted to be a major winter snowstorm.

Shasho said the city’s fleet of between 18 to 20 plows is all up and ready to go. Crews got the trucks ready and loaded yesterday in anticipation of today’s weather, where 5 to 10 inches of snow is being predicted for much of the area.

Shasho said major roads will be taken care of first and depending on the amount of snowfall they may need treated again before side streets can be tackled. City crews also salt and plow the ramps to Interstate 680 and state Route 711 and the Madison Avenue Expressway that cut through the city but the Ohio Department of Transportation handles snow removal on the roads themselves.

Im going to guess there wont be a thing done except a few of the main streets then then after an hour or so they will all be at a local restaurant somewhere . Youngstown always has the worst snow removal. Since its going to warm up on Sunday/Monday my street and most side streets will not be touched.

Suggest removal:

I was told that if there is a warm day the following day, that the street department doesn't do the side streets. Sometimes I believe that, but idk if Boardman has a different system, but the last little snow we had, they cleaned and salted my street twice, and there are only 5 homes on my street.

Suggest removal:
