BROKEN ARROW - There is no snow in the immediate forecast, but that doesn't mean the city of Broken Arrow isn't hard at work getting ready for all contingencies.
Communications Director Krista Flasch says street crews are going over routes and preparing for snow and ice.
“Before people even think about winter weather, our crews are out there checking equipment and making sure it’s in working order,” Flasch said.
Broken Arrow has purchased three new snow plows to replace ones that were no longer working. They also have a new sand spreader.
Flasch adds they’re also making sure the city and the school district are on the same page.
The city may be ready for winter storms, but most residents we spoke to are hoping it will hold off. One woman says there is no point in preparing for the snow in this state.
“We’re not really prepared at all,” the woman said. “Oklahoma’s weather is really unpredictable, so we’re going to go with the flow.”
