Snowmageddon claims another victim

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt January 28, 2014

Icon_GovernmentTonight’s Decatur State of the City address is cancelled and will be rescheduled. It was going to be held in conjunction with the monthly Decatur Business Association meeting, which was also cancelled.

As is Youth Basketball at the Decatur Recreation center, according to city spokeswoman Caise Yoder. The gym will close at 5 pm. Thursday garbage pickup might be delayed due to road conditions.

Yoder says, “Snow is expected to begin falling this afternoon, and roads are expected to freeze. State routes will be the priority for road crews clearing streets, followed by major city streets. Residential streets will be the last to be cleared. City of Decatur residents are encouraged to clear the sidewalks in front of their property.

I’ll post more updates as information becomes available.

UPDATE: Another announcement from Casie Yoder.
