Carroll County Commissioner Stephen Wantz update on the aftermath of massive storm Jonas for Carroll County

8 p.m. Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Earlier today on Facebook, Carroll County Commissioner Stephen Wantz posted an update on the aftermath of massive storm Jonas for Carroll County:

An update on the aftermath of massive storm Jonas for Carroll County. As of 4PM today every county road has been plowed. Crews will be working through the night to begin the task of widening lanes.

As President of the Board of Commissioners, I want to express our appreciation, for the cooperation and patience of our residents in Carroll County during this unprecedented storm.

We organized a very coordinated effort in Carroll County to deal with the cleanup and other effects of the storm.

From the National Guard assistance, to Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS workers, all entities represented at the Emergency Operations Center, Good Samaritan citizens, and private contractors who helped clear snow, and especially our Bureau of Roads Operations for working diligently night and day, on the daunting task of clearing 900+ miles of county roads.

We cannot forget fleet management who worked round the clock to repair and keep the plow equipment on the road. Many departments of Carroll County Government assisted us with our work in some way during the storm.

The dedication from all of these folks is very much appreciated. We are working with Superintendent Guthrie and CCPS on the daunting task of getting school lots ready for opening as soon as it is possible (CCPS maintenance and custodial crews are working hard clearing lots and sidewalks), and county crews are continuing to improve roads and intersections from the massive pileup of snow.

We are certainly not finished with the work at hand, and will continue to collaborate with all needed entities as we move forward during the storm recovery process, to get the county back to regular function.

Again thank you for listening to our call for patience and staying off the roads during the height of the snow removal, so that we could make this type of progress.
