[ARCHIVED] PRESS RELEASE: CITY PREPARES FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER

PRESS RELEASE: CITY PREPARES FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: GREENVILLE: The City of Greenville is preparing for the predicted inclement weather due to hit North Texas. Weather forecasts are calling for temperatures to drastically drop to below freezing.

The City of Greenville Public Works department has a plan of action in the event inclement weather and hazardous road conditions develop. The sand spreader is operational, fueled, and ready for service. A backhoe, bucket truck, and all necessary equipment are fueled and ready to be deployed, as needed. City personnel will be available after hours and during the weekend to handle any situation that may occur.

Weather-related utility events such as frozen, leaking, and broken water piping or blocked sewer piping on the City’s service lines will be handled as quickly as possible during normal work hours, which are Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Residents may call (903) 457-3152 for assistance. After hours and weekends, calls may be made to (903) 457-2900.

Residents are urged to plan and prepare for inclement weather by wrapping exposed pipes, protecting plants and shrubs, checking for adequate anti-freeze levels in vehicles, and providing shelter for outdoor animals. It is also a good idea to stock up on extra batteries for flashlights and radios and to have a small supply of water and ready-to-eat foods in the event of an extended utility service interruption.
