Princeton was prepared for winter blast

Snow fall Thursday set an 80 year record

Winter visited Princeton yesterday and brought with it 10 cm of snow, according to Environment Canada.

It is the most snow to bless the town on November 2 since at least 1937.

Municipal workers were ready for the season’s first blast, according to infrastructure director Michael Mazurek.

“We’ve been preparing,” he told the Spotlight Friday morning.

By 9 a.m all the priority routes in town were cleared, including hills, access roads to schools and the hospital, and major arteries.

Princeton’s snow removal equipment has been tuned up and made ready for winter, and the town also got a chance Friday to try out its new sander.

“It seems to be working quite well,” said Mazurek.
