City's Storm Cleanup Costs Top $536,000; Weather Response Part of Current Operating Budget
It started with a fairly routine winter storm pre-treatment - the City's Public Service Department crews on Feb. 15 spreading 23 tons of brine on 470 lane miles, in anticipation of a forecasted ice storm. Then the notorious Feb. 16 ice storm hit. Then a follow-up ice storm. And then two more major snowfalls the week of Feb. 23. Over a two-week period, the successive waves of winter weather were relentless. But so were City workers, who plowed and re-plowed streets, spread 3,200 tons of salt, and cleared sidewalks downtown, around schools and on Market Square.

Bicycle Plan Prioritizes More than 100 Projects
Knoxville bicyclists last year identified roads where they think improved riding conditions would create better connections for bicycle transportation, and a planning committee and professional design consultants teamed to study 220 potential projects in an 80-mile network. City of Knoxville officials will present that plan - the finalized Bicycle Facilities Plan - at a public meeting that is being scheduled. The meeting time and location will be announced when finalized.
