***Winter Storm Response*** Tuesday, January 18, 2021 11:30 a.m.

Good Morning, Lewisville residents. We hope everyone is staying safe and warm.

Snow removal crews are back in place today to service neighborhood roads maintained by the Town. They will be applying salt and will plow other areas once the ice begins to melt. Please be sure cars are not parked in the roadways. Conditions are still icy and slick in many of the shaded areas. Please remember to move all cars in the roads to allow the snow plows to service your road and to navigate safely.

Temperatures will climb into the 40's today. This warm-up should be a great help in melting the accumulated ice on many of the roadways and sidewalks.

This morning's travel is treacherous on many of the main roads as well. Please avoid travel if possible. If you must drive, please exercise an abundance of caution and allow extra time for your commute.

The NC Department of Transportation presently has crews on the main roads they maintain including: Shallowford, Lewisville-Clemmons, Lewisville-Vienna, Williams, Grapevine, etc. Please maintain a safe distance from the snow plows.

Waste Management has cancelled all trash and recycle collection throughout Forsyth County for today. Tomorrow's routes have not yet been determined. Please check our Facebook page or website for any updates.

If you have any concerns regarding Town maintained roads, please contact the Public Works Director, Ryan Moser at 336-945-1020. Please leave a detailed message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.

Temperatures are expected to again drop below freezing tonight. This may cause refreezing on the roads. Please exercise caution in the morning. Wednesday's afternoon temperatures will be a mild 51 degrees and further melting is expected.

We extend special thanks to Town staff members (Ryan Moser, Stacy Howard, Hank Perkins, David Matthews and Gennie Taylor) who have been working non-stop since Saturday evening to keep our residents informed and safe. It's been a team effort and we are appreciative to have such dedicated staff.

Enjoy today's sunshine and warmer temperatures. As always, it is a pleasure to serve our residents.
