What constitutes a snow emergency?
Last week, Richfield experienced its first major winter weather event of the season, which blanketed the city with ice.
No snow emergency was declared, but in Minnesota, it is more a case of "when" it will happen, rather than a case of "if" it will happen.
Have you ever wondered how and why a snow emergency is declared? If so, you are going to want to listen to this week's episode of the That's Rich(field) Podcast.
This week, Public Works Department Operations Superintendent Chris Link discusses how the city battles winter weather and why it has adopted a smart salting policy.
