MASON CITY, Iowa - Snow removal crews once again hit the streets on Wednesday to try and clean up the nearly 8 inches of snow that had fallen in Mason City.

Bob Berggren, the Mason City City Streets Department Manager, said he has noticed a lot of cars not parking in their driveways during these late snow falls making it difficult for crews to clear the snow as much as they would like to.

He says that could be because people are sick of having to clear off their driveways and just wait for it to melt.

While he says clearing the roads is part of the job, the snow is also holding them back from some of the summer projects they already would be doing this time of year.

“We’ve got playground installations coming up, you look at park stuff, the campgrounds want to get open, the swimming pool wants to get open and the golf course as well,” he said.

Crews will again hit the roads Thursday around 5 AM.
