With fall in full swing, Sikeston Public Works is preparing for winter. The City is currently replacing three of its four dump trucks used for plowing and salt spreading operations and a plow is being acquired for use with the front-end loader to provide additional snow-clearing equipment. City Manager, JD Douglass tells KZIM KSIM the uncertainty of the weather is what makes winter so different from other seasons.
Public Works Director Jay Lancaster spoke with the City Council this week so they would be able to answer any of your questions. The department is researching the use of salt brine to pre-treat City streets.
