POLICE CHIEF: Avoid Travel, Clear Vehicles From Roads, Check on Neighbors

 01/28/2019 - 12:36

By 12:30 p.m. Monday, a winter storm had already dropped three inches of snow, and the white stuff is expected to keep falling into the evening. Meanwhile, temperatures will rise until hitting the freezing mark around 6 p.m., and then begin the grim march to below zero, expected Wednesday.

Saline Police Chief Jerrod Hart advised residents to stay off the roads – whether driving a vehicle or simply parking one.

“Please keep travel to a minimum,” Hart advised, before reminding residents to move parked vehicles from streets so the Department of Public Works crews can clear snow.

Hart also suggested people check in on neighbors who may need assistance.

“Be a good neighbor by taking the time to check on older adults and those with special needs in your neighborhood,” Hart said.

The City of Saline suggested these warming centers.
