MISHAWAKA — Because of weather conditions, Mayor Dave Wood has asked motorists to stay off city streets unless absolutely necessary throughout the duration of the snowstorm.
The city is relying on minimal traffic to allow snow removal crews to clear streets, according to a news release. Wood said the first priority is to have clear streets for emergency personnel to respond as necessary.
Wednesday’s collection of trash and recycling has been delayed until Thursday, Wood said. Trash collection on each remaining day this week will be shifted one day, weather permitting, with Friday’s collection set to be completed Saturday.
The mayor reminds residents of the following:
— All city snow removal personnel and equipment have been deployed to work around the clock, concentrating their snow removal operations on main roads.
