Idaho Falls launches new assault on slush

The city of Idaho Falls has so far spent around $400,000 to contract help for snow removal over the past three weeks. City spokesperson Kerry Hammon said the city has not yet calculated the extra overtime expense of paying for 12-hour shifts for more than 2 weeks.

Idaho Falls has begun plowing its “Priority1 and Priority 2” streets (main and secondary roads) to take care of slush on the roads. Gravel is also being distributed over Priority 1 and 2 streets.

Some standing water is to be expected.

People who notice dangerous flooding or drainage issues are asked to report those problems to the city. Anyone with concerns about drainage issues during regular 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, business hours should call the Wastewater Division at 612-8108. During non-working hours, contact Dispatch at 612-8430.
