Flint, MI – City of Flint salt trucks and snowplows are now out working to improve road conditions after the city was hit with its first snowstorm of the season on Monday.
According to a statement from City Hall, snowplows and salt trucks were not ready to tackle the snowfall when it hit on Monday morning, the day new Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley was sworn in to take office.
“Unfortunately, when the new administration took office on Monday afternoon, it was discovered that snowplows and salt trucks hadn’t been properly readied for the winter season,” said a statement from Flint Chief of Staff Brian Larkin. “The situation was immediately addressed when the new administration came into office.”
Larkin said the city will work to improve road conditions as quickly as possible.
