(CHADRON)-Chadron street crews continue working to clean up city streets from the foot and a half of snow that was dumped on the area this week. Some residents may be feeling an urgency to have everything cleaned up already and others may feel frustrated that they can’t easily get out of their driveways, but city manager Wayne Anderson wishes to assure people that the street crews are doing the best they can with the resources they have and with the magnitude of the storm.

Anderson says the snow won’t last long, and he is beseeching residents to exercise the P-word while the city puts itself back together after the storm.

Anderson says since city roads are still in the process of being cleaned, and parking is sketchy near City Hall, as well as the evening promising to be another chilly and icy one, the first town hall meeting for the LB-840 vote coming up on April 30th, which was scheduled for Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m., has been cancelled. Anderson said he really wanted to hold the meeting, but didn’t want to risk anyone’s safety. The city will be holding two more town hall meetings in the coming weeks, each at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall, one on Wednesday, April 17th, and the other on Tuesday, April 23rd.
            Anderson also is reminding residents that if they venture out and decide to park in the downtown area for any reason, that they need to parallel park along curbs right now because of snow removal efforts. No angled parking is permitted at this time in the downtown area, only parallel parking per the city.
