County Trucks Prepare for Snow to Fly


By: Alli Harlan

The Logan County Engineer’s Office is preparing for the upcoming winter season.

In October, thirteen snowplow trucks started their service process.

They were serviced, sanders were put on, and pump and tank systems were tested.

Salt will be filled as snowstorms arise.

A rust-preventative liquid will be sprayed on the trucks, after each use, to keep them as new as possible.

The county will start plowing snow as needed beginning at 3 a.m. and does not plan to plow overnight unless it is necessary to do so.

In early November, The Ohio Highway Patrol and local Law Enforcement met with the Engineer’s Office to discuss their plans, with safety being their top priority.

Scott Coleman, Professional Engineer at the Logan County Engineer’s Office, talks about the motto, “Ice and Snow, Take it Slow”.
