MCPS Closes Schools for Wednesday; County Executive Pledges That All Neighborhood Streets Would See
As residents in the Germantown/Clarksburg area continue to deal with the after effects of the Blizzard of ’16, including a number of streets which remain unplowed, County Executive Ike Leggett pledged today that all neighborhood streets in Montgomery County should receive a least one pass from a snowplow by 7:00 am, Wednesday, Jan. 27.
Leggett made the pledge while visiting the Bethesda Snow Operation Depot in Rockville, earlier today. “Despite the historic snowfalls we have received, our County road crews have been working hard, and smart 24/7 since the snow stopped to clear our roads and get people back to work and kids back to school,” said Leggett.
However, kids won’t be returning to school on Wednesday, as Montgomery County Public Schools announced that schools would be closed for a third day this week and a fourth straight day due the over 38-inches of snow which fell on Montgomery County during the Blizzard of ’16.
