City of Sulphur Springs’ Only Sandspreader Breaks. Caution Urged on City Roads.

by

 

Cars travel down the service road and interstate in Sulphur Springs during Sunday’s winter weather.

 

City Manager Marc Maxwell informed us that the City of Sulphur Springs’ only sandspreader suffered a complete malfunction when the shaft that turns the spreader sheared in two.

The city employees will now have to spread sand manually by shovel which will severely hamper the city’s ability to respond to icy conditions.

Maxwell said, ”Before the malfunction all we could really do is sand intersections, but now even that will be more difficult.”

Maxwell expects the conditions are only going to get worse over the next couple of days and that the community should plan to stay at home unless there is no other option.
