Brookhaven, GA, January 20, 2016 – by Trey Benton – The City of Brookhaven Public Works Department says that it is prepared to treat streets and bridges in the event winter weather were to hit the City. According to Public Works Director, Bennett White, his staff monitors weather and street conditions and if needed, they will deploy City Contractor RoadWorx, to implement a Snow and Ice Removal Plan.
“The City contracts with RoadWorx to treat roads when conditions warrant,” White told The Post. “RoadWorx maintains a staging area adjacent to Clairmont Road across from PDK Airport. RoadWorx stores salt and small aggregate at the staging area for use in treating streets and bridges.”
So the City is prepared, but are you?
With the talk of the potential of winter weather in North Georgia – perhaps a taste of it slipping down into our area – it is a good time to remind commuters that creating a “Ready Kit” to keep in the car is a very good idea.
Ready Georgia, a statewide campaign supported by the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) aimed at motivating Georgians to take action to prepare for a disaster, has created a list of suggested items you may want to consider when making your own specialized “Ready Kit.”
