[ARCHIVED] Mayors ask citizens to avoid driving

City of Clarksville blue full (3)

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. --  Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett, Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts and first responders urge citizens to stay off area streets and roads amid the expected winter weather.

“This is likely to be a significant snow event. Our highway and street departments are urging people to stay home on Monday, if they can,”  County Mayor Jim Durrett said.

Mayor Pitts said road crews and equipment are ready, but with the amount of snow predicted, it will take crews longer to clear the streets. 

“We are asking for patience,” Mayor Pitts said. “The fewer vehicles on the roads, the faster the streets can be cleared and the safer everyone will be.”

Citizens who use an alternate heat source -- such as a fireplace, wood stove or kerosene heater -- should make sure smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are working. All fuel burning equipment should be vented to the outside and generators should be placed outdoors. Fire extinguishers should be charged, tested and easy to access.

A flashlight with extra batteries, a battery-powered radio and a fully charged cell phone are beneficial for safety and convenience during cold weather conditions.

Citizens should watch local media and County and City social media pages for updates.
