Lansing Officials Speak About Snow Response

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero and the city's emergency response team spoke about the city's storm response Monday.

A news conference was held at 12p.m. at the city's Emergency Operations Center at Fire Station #8.

Members of the city's emergency response team will also be on hand to speak, including police, fire and public service departments.

"Once again mother nature has sent us a clear and convincing message that shes's bigger and stronger than all of us," said Bernero after declaring Lansing in a snow emergency following the storm.

Lansing Police have been given the go-ahead to tow cars parked in the street that may be in the way for plow trucks. However, they say they will not be pulling people over to ticket them because they're driving. Officials are just urging drivers to use common sense and to only go on roads if necessary.

"Use good judgement. If you can avoid being out and about in the city streets, stay inside your homes," said Lansing Police Chief Mike Yankowski.

Extra police patrols, plows and clean-up crews were all in force on Monday, working to restore the city.
