The city of Nampa has released an updated Snow and Ice Control Plan on its website, bracing for what has been forecasted another brutal winter.
“Although this winter’s forecast may not come to fruition, city staff members are prepared for the worst,” Mayor Bob Henry said. “It may seem early, but after last year’s snowmageddon, we evaluated citizen expectations, comments from the City Council and we explored how other cities respond to major snow storms.”
The new Nampa Snow and Ice Control Plan is available at www.cityofnampa.us/snow. The web page provides links to useful information along with the city’s planned response, depending on conditions.
“We’ve made several changes to the plan,” Public Works Director Michael Fuss said. “I appreciate City Council’s support, financially, so the city will be better prepared to respond if we should have another epic series of storms.”
Those changes include:
In anticipation of the upcoming snow season, the city has budgeted accordingly:
