City Crews Working to respond to Historic Snow Event

KLVT news has received information from the City of Levelland on their response to the historic snow event.

As you know Levelland received nearly a foot of snow in a matter of 24 hours and many snow drifts accumulated over several feet high.  City crews have been working tirelessly from the beginning of this event to clear the heavily traveled streets.  According to the information from the City this morning they are unable to provide a time frame on when streets will be cleared or a schedule for clearing.

According to the news release from the city, “While all city streets are important, crews are focusing on the heavily traveled areas first.  Upon completion of those streets they will start trying to clearing residential streets.”

The city has also received information from Republic Services that they will not be able to collect garbage in Levelland until road conditions and alley conditions improve.  Once they mobilize to the city they will work until they are caught up.  In addition, the city landfill, transfer station and recycling center are closed until further notice.  All other city offices are open.

The city thanks you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.  We need to remember this is a historic snow event and the City of Levelland has limited resources for dealing with this, however, they have had first responders and city crews out from the beginning trying to get streets to medical facilities and emergency facilities open.  We also must say a big thank you to the number of residents that used their own vehicles and equipment and time to rescue people and clearing some driveways and etc.
