Mayor Collins looks ahead to big melt

Posted: Updated:

Toledo crews have been busy digging out, but new mayor D. Michael Collins is looking ahead to the big melt.

"How do we handle the melt.? And that's going to be something I'm going to be bringing you tomorrow when we have our critique, because with this we will transition into warmer weather. When we will see the melt and where this will be introduced into our storm sewer system?"

With 20 inches of snow melt, there could be basement flooding and water-logged streets. Plus there will be potholes and road repairs.

Right now Collins says clearing the roads so people can get out their front door is the priority.
