Street crews deal with snow, Fourth St. gets gas line work

By Gretta Becay

Ahhh, springtime in Minnesota. Sweep the streets or plow them? Such are the constant surprises in store for city crews as robins cruise into town and snow keeps coming back.

Public Works Superintendent Tom Ricke has his hands full.

He explained that city crews have a schedule for each week and a schedule for long term projects but then, "...nine inches of snow kinda messes up your schedules," he joked last week after the spring snow dumped almost a foot of snow on Byron.

He explained that there are big pieces of equipment to plow snow including two front end loaders with front plows and wings and two single-axle dump trucks with plows and wings. There are also smaller vehicles like skid loaders and pickup trucks with attached plows.

When a big snowstorm settles over Byron, "Most everyone is on plow duty," he said. "We usually run six pieces of equipment at a time," so almost everyone is plowing.

Read the rest of the story in the print edition of the Byron Review.
