3:00 p.m. Storm Updates for the City of Salisbury

Salisbury –
 Snowfall remains heavy as of this release, but is forecast to begin to taper off in the early evening hours tonight.  Snow removal operations have been underway in the City since the early overnight hours, but the relentless snowfall and high winds have necessitated the repeated plowing of the City’s Snow Emergency Routes.  Given the nature and severity of this storm, Field Operations anticipates being able to transition over residential neighborhood plowing operations by mid-morning tomorrow (Friday, 1/5).  We appreciate your patience and understanding.
 
All City offices will remain CLOSED tomorrow.  If you have an emergency, please dial 911 immediately.  For non-emergency issues after hours, call 410-548-3165
 
Trash removal and recycling operations remain suspended until the routes clear.  Residents who typically have Thursday or Friday pickup will have their trash removed as soon as it is possible for crews to resume collection (Earliest, Monday.)
 
As of 1:00 p.m. today, SPD reported more than 60 vehicles stuck and/or stranded, and 4 motor vehicle collisions, with 1 resulting in injury.  PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE UNTIL CONDITIONS IMPROVE.
 
 
Pursuant to Chapter 10.12.020 of the Municipal Code of the City of Salisbury, the Chief of Police may declare a snow emergency for all snow emergency routes as a whole or for any one or more snow emergency routes as deemed necessary.
Pursuant to Chapter 10.12.040 of the Municipal Code of the City of Salisbury, it is unlawful for any person to park a vehicle on any city street that is designated and appropriately signposted as a snow emergency route and for which a snow emergency has been declared and is in effect.
Additionally, pursuant to Chapter 10.12.050, during the time when a snow emergency is in effect, the police department shall have the authority to take possession of, issue citations for, remove, tow away and impound any vehicle found parked, stalled, incapable of proceeding under its own power or left unattended upon any street designated as a snow emergency route; and, before the owner thereof may thereafter obtain possession of such vehicles, he shall first pay the cost of removing such vehicle and any storage charges. 
For service calls after normal business hours, please contact the Salisbury Police Department at 410-548-3165. For emergency situations, please dial 911 immediately.

Mr culver made a great call by letting us county workers off for 2 days. there was no need to turn a bunch of drunks loose in county trucks who wouldn't do anything but tear shit up.

culver doesn't want to do any alcohol or drug testing on county employees because he thinks it could cost him votes.

Culver is dreaming about $130,000 a year, and trust me, that's all he's doing because it's not gonna happen. Culver and his gang read these blogs and him and county supervisors (especially the civic center bunch) have been told repeatedly about the alcohol problem among workers even when they are on the clock. Culver must think it's ok for workers to show up drunk and continue to drink all day while putting citizens and coworkers at risk. Jack Heath isn't going to play that game.

Culver doesn't want any one to test him for drugs and alcohol....why test the employees when they simply imitate their boss?

Culver can feed us all the scrapple and sausage he wants and we love it, but we're still not going to vote for anybody who pushes his mom down a flight of stairs and doesn't pay his bills. We didn't know last time, but we know now. GO JACK
