Snow Plows Continue Night and Day

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Billing City Manager Tina Volek tells KULR-8 News the plows started at midnight. Just like most of us, she says the crews are getting tired of having to deal with all this snow.

They are working 12 hour shifts to keep the main roads clear.

The Deputy Director of Public Works Vern Heisler says there were 10 trucks and 5 haulers out today.

"What you'll see tonight is, we'll go out with somewhere between eighteen and twenty trucks and we'll be doing mostly plowing. There will be a little bit of sanding going on, and about Monday afternoon, Monday night is when we'll start picking that snow up," says Heisler.

He also wants people to remember for safety reasons please stay clear of working crews and plows.
