The snow clean-up crew in Sturgeon Bay is able to keep busy even with the surprising lack of snow so far this December. Mike Barker is the Director of Municipal Services for Sturgeon Bay and he says they’re still cleaning up leaves, keeping the snow equipment ready to go, and removing dead ash trees from some of the parks. Some also take vacation days during the holiday season, but they know they have to cut that short in case of a fast-developing blizzard.
It’s never been an issue for Barker as there have always been volunteers to clean up the snow whenever it’s been needed. If that didn’t happen they would call the crew in order of reverse seniority.
A “White Christmas” is not in the forecast right now. There is a possibility for snow on New Years Eve and New Years Day.
