Macomb mayor: "We're weathering it pretty well"

Posted:
MACOMB, Ill. (WGEM) -

The City of Macomb has also declared a snow emergency, meaning drivers must move their cars from emergency snow routes or their car could be towed.

While some drivers are still brave enough to weather the storm in Macomb, others are playing it safe, and advising you to do the same.

"I just came from Monmouth and it's almost zero visibility," said Brandon Harrison.

"Obviously it's dangers I would suggest no one going on the roads tonight. We just stopped to get dinner, I'd just suggest staying off the roads," said Carissa Bolvin.

Macomb Mayor Mike Inman says because of that extra caution from residents, there have been no major accidents in Macomb.

"We've had an excellent response from the public people are staying at home staying off the streets and allowing our crews that are out and have been out for several hours to get the work done," said Inman.

In the snow emergency, Inman says they will plow the main roads first and work towards side streets.

Inman says they will work overnight to get the job done.

"We do have a night to get through, but it appears we're weathering it pretty well, no pun intended," said Inman.
