Clay councilwoman thanks city leaders for winter storm aid
By Lee Weyhrich
CLAY — Mayor Charles Webster, City Manager Ronnie Dixon, Public Works Superintendent Josh Isbell and many others worked tirelessly through last week’s winter storm, Clay City Councilwoman Becky Johnson said Monday.
“I would like to say thank you to the mayor and to Ronnie and to Josh, (as well as) all Public Works people and deputies for all the work they did during the ice storm of 2014, especially for all the people that needed a ride or a push out of a ditch,” Johnson said. “We’re very grateful to have them around. I know the mayor and Ronnie both made numerous trips taking people home.”
Webster continued to give stranded motorists rides home through last Thursday.
Clay Senior Activity Center co-director Linda Plummer stayed overnight at the center with stranded senior citizens due to the weather.
Even though the ice threat has ended, poor weather continues to halt the patching and repaving of Old Springville Road. According to Dixon, workers need at least three good weather days in a row before the project may be started.
