After dealing with four days of sub-zero weather, the City of Algoma came out of the ordeal relatively unscathed. City Administrator Jeff Wiswell says residents complied during the state of emergency by keeping the streets clear for snowplows to do their work. He says street department personnel earned the rest of the week off of work by putting in some long days.
Wiswell says the city was fortunate not experience any water main breaks. He says reportedly one Algoma resident experienced a basement backup and another had frozen pipes this last week.
