Roads and Street crews get our thanks

Columbia and Adair County road and street departments were in the spotlight during the ice and snow storm that we have just recovered from. Columbia Magazine passes along the following positive comments from among many who had to travel and saw the differences:

Debbie Selby writes, "Adair county residents we need to be very appreciative of our state road department. They are so dedicated and efficient in keeping our roads in good shape during this hazardous weather. Taylor and Marion county roads are treacherous. If our crews can do it, they should be able too. Thank you guys for your hard work and dedication.

It does not go unnoticed. Also our first responders need recognition for taking care of us even when the conditions are unfavorable and dangerous. Again it does not go unnoticed. While we are in our warm homes you all are out taking care of our community. Thank you"

Columbia Police Department Chief Charles Greer says, "Columbia's Street Department is second to none. They do an amazing job with limited equipment. Their shift starts at 4am and the four of them work constantly to keep the roads clean as weather bears down on our city of 4,800."

Heather Spoon shared, "Been to multiple counties today, and Adair County roads are definitely in the best shape. Great job road crews."
