CITY PREPARES FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER

GREENVILLE: The City of Greenville is preparing for the predicted inclement weather due to hit the North Texas area later this week.

Weather forecasts are calling for possible sleet and snow flurries.
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, backhoe, bucket truck, and all necessary equipment are fueled and ready to be deployed, as needed. City personnel have been notified to be available as necessary after hours to handle any
situations that may occur.

Weather related utility events such as frozen, leaking and broken water pipes, or blocked sewer pipes on the City’s service lines will be handled as quickly as possible. During normal work hours customers may call (903) 457-3152 for assistance. After hours and weekend calls may be made to (903) 457-2948.

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.
