#LateStart Weather conditions continue to create concerns for travel in and around the Kearney area. Due to these conditions, all City offices will have a late start, opening at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday January 17th. The Peterson Activity Center will remain closed tomorrow and will reopen on Wednesday the 18th.
We encourage all citizens to use caution if you must be on the roads, but to stay home if possible. Here again are some street related items to remember during a winter storm:
• If you see power lines down on the road, please DO NOT drive over or attempt to move them. Wires on the ground may still be live. The same is true for ice-covered tree branches touching wires. Please notify NPPD about downed wires at 1-877-275-6773. If you encounter downed trees on the street report them to the City of Kearney Public Works Department at 1-308-233-3218.
• Ice accumulation on roadways is difficult to combat and may create slick winter driving conditions. The City of Kearney Public Works Department is preparing for these conditions with extra personnel and equipment on stand-by. City equipment will be spreading de-icing materials. Stay clear of this equipment and be cautious of flying debris from the materials. Please use extreme caution if you must be out in these conditions. #kearney #winterweather #icestorm2017 ...
