Public Works Director Walter Veselka said that snowplow operators and other necessary personnel are going to start getting ready at 7 a.m. to deal with Friday's predicted storm.
Veselka said that forecasters have told the city to expect the snow to begin about 10:30 a.m. and continue until about 9 p.m., with the heaviest snowfall between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. He said it is likely to total between 6 and 10 inches in Bristol.
This year, for the first time, the city is using an ice melting chemical across town. It should cut down on the sand and grit on city roads.
