DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Miami Valley saw it’s first big snow event of the season Tuesday and the City of Dayton reacted fast.
The city sent out 39 salt trucks working to keep the roads as safe as possible for commuters.
Street Maintenance District Manager, Mark Riley says his crew was prepared for the snow.
“We were able to get ahead of the storm. We pre-salted, which enabled us to get the streets to look how they look,” he said.
Robert Tucker has been driving salt trucks for the city for 15 years. It’s a job he says he loves and while it’s fun, it’s important.
“It’s different every day and we work so nobody gets hurt and everybody gets to work, all that good stuff. Kids get to school,” said Tucker.
Tucker doesn’t consider Tuesday’s snowfall severe but says any amount of snow can impact driving conditions.
