Local snow removal crews are wrapping up their work following a foot or more of snow that fell on the River Bend on Sunday. Monday was a day to try to get to most of the side streets and today will be a touch up day to clear paths as residents dig out their vehicles. Overall, street department directors were pleased with the response, and thankful for the patience from citizens.
Alton Director of Public Works Brad Cunningham says the crews will continue to try to open up more parking spots as people dig out their cars:
Godfrey Street Department Director Jim Lewis says despite the high snow totals, his crews did a good job keeping the streets as clear as possible:
Lewis reminds residents Godfrey is a mix of roads maintained by the village, the county and the state and his department can only plow the village roads, which does not include Humbert Road, Godfrey Road or Delmar Avenue. Those are all cleaned by other departments.
