Employee turnover and the loss of institutional knowledge contributes to poor City of Mill Creek snow response

The city now has one only one four-wheel drive truck with a snow plow attachment to keep city streets clear of snow. The four-person maintenance staff made the best of it and worked many overtime hours, but this was entirely inadequate for last weekend’s snow storm.
