Cities help clean up fallen trees and branches after heavy snowstorm

Following Monday night’s heavy snowstorm, the City of Logan is helping residents clean up fallen branches. But the crews won’t take all the tree waste left by the storm, only what has fallen on sidewalks, park strips and roadways.

“We’ve got crews out right now . . . almost the entire Public Works Department out there picking up tree limbs and branches,” said Hart Wybrow, Logan Street Maintenance division manager on Wednesday.

 

The early season snowstorm brought unusually wet snow that clung to trees, breaking off branches that downed power lines. Although roads were cleared fairly quickly, the power outages affected thousands of homes and took several hours to resolve, leading Logan and some Cache County schools to close for the day. The remainder of Cache district schools started on a 2-hour delay, and USU cancelled classes in multiple morning time slots. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
