Overland Park gov’t — City Source: When will it stop? Make it even greener

More than 60 snow plow operators continue to battle against the repetitive snow storms closing out the year of 2009.

Overnight, nearly two inches of fresh snow fell, forcing crew members, who have been on duty since Dec. 24, to continue moving snow and treating streets.

If you took all the snow that fell on city streets from Thursday through Monday and piled it on a football field, it would be 2,178 feet high.

Overland Park estimates that nearly $100,000 was spent on overtime from Thursday through Monday for snow crews. Today, crews had thoroughfares and collectors generally done by morning rush hour. Residential streets should be done late in the afternoon. However, that depends on Mother Nature. Weather forecasts call for afternoon snow showers.
