Road crews were able to clear streets quickly while traffic volume was down due to Presidents’ Day.

Festus Police Chief Tim Lewis says even with 9 inches of snow, it wasn’t bad in town.

According to Chief Lewis, they did have a few calls reporting vehicle slide offs; however, they didn’t see an abnormal or an influx in calls for service during the winter storm.
