Micah Cawley

 

Yakima Mayor Micah Cawley issued a statement this afternoon on how the city is handling snow removal.Here’s the text of Mayor Cawley’s statement on snow removal:

 

Good afternoon.  I just wanted to update you on our snow mitigation efforts.  As of about noon:

 

We have been busy applying deicer/sand/salt mix to work against the freezing rain.

 

We have called in the  5 contractors on our list for snow removal to begin plowing residential streets, and our working to get a 6th on the list and working today. This effort will start in the west and work east.  We may also be utilizing water and wastewater equipment and crews to assist.

 

Snow will continuing the afternoon and evening, and we will need to be plowing arterials and collectors again very soon.  As getting through all of those is a 12 hour cycle, the downtown will probably not be cleared tonight, with the exception of Yakima Avenue and MLK/Lincoln, which will be plowed.  We had planned to do the entire downtown before the weather shifted again. Be safe friends!
