David Welch, commissioner of Streets, Bridges & Harbor, says crews are working twelve hour shifts to clear residential streets of snow. "We called in six divisions yesterday to help with our residential areas," Mr. Welch said. South Toledo resident Jonathan Thornton got stuck as he drove out of his driveway on Sunday. "It's awful, it's awful right here in this particular area; I got stuck here yesterday," Mr. Thornton said.
Welch says the city's supply of road salt is dwindling. "If this record snow continues we will have some issues," Mr. Welch said.
Lucas County, as well as the cities of Fremont and Napoleon have asked the city of Toledo for some its road salt. Toledo Mayor Mike Collins says the county and those two cities can take some of the city's road salt at no charge provided they return it when they make their next purchase of road salt later this year.
