Press Release #3
Garrard County and the City of Lancaster have made significant progress over the night and during Tuesday morning with the effects of Winter Storm Octavia. Road treatment operations were held off until daylight in order to avoid freezing of melting snow. Primary roads are now passable in Garrard County, including those maintained by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. Secondary roads are still being plowed and treated at this time.
Declarations of a State of Local Emergency have been signed by both Garrard County Judge/Executive, John Wilson, and City of Lancaster Mayor, Chris Davis. These declarations will allow for the expeditious allocation of resources from the Commonwealth and mutual aid from other Kentucky counties.
No weather related injuries nor significant public or individual damages have been reported at this time.
