City shines in storm response

Considering the sleet, ice and five inches of snow — not to mention the bitter cold and blistering wind — Muskogee city officials and emergency responders deserve applause.

These people carried out their jobs diligently so we could remain safe during the miserable conditions.

City workers were hard at work during the storm and over the weekend plowing roads and laying sand on the streets.

Some people may complain that their roads weren’t cleared fast enough, and some roads likely aren’t cleared yet. But the major roads in town are drivable, and, for the most part, dry.

City workers, police officers, fire fighters and paramedics worked in unfavorable conditions. It’s times like these when their stars truly shine, and we want to say thanks.

Your work is appreciated.
