🌱 Toledo Crews Prepare For Snow + East Toledo Public Vet To Open
Happy Wednesday, neighbors! Let’s get you all caught up to start today off on an informed note.
First, today’s weather:
Snow and sleet, 2-4in; colder. High: 36 Low: 20.
Here are the top five stories today in Toledo:
- The City of Toledo is preparing its five-level treatment system for the anticipated heavy snowstorm this week, according to Commisioner of Toledo’s Streets, Bridges, and Harbor Jeremy Mikolajczyk. Rain early today presents an extra challenge, as pre-salting efforts will likely be washed away. The expected snow will probably not be cleared until Sunday. (WTOL)
- With this week’s snowstorm on the horizon, there are several area resources ready to help Toledoans. Reach out to the United Way of Greater Toledo or the Area Office on Aging for assistance such as meal delivery or information about shelters. (WTOL)
- The Toledo Humane Society is opening a new public vet clinic on East Broadway in East Toledo. The facilities, which will occupy a former pet clinic that closed in 2020, are possible through a large donation from PetSmart Charities and are expected to open in March. (13abc Action News)
- The new exhibition “Living Legacies: Art of the African American South” is now open at the Toledo Museum of Art. Many of the pieces were created by artists that were active during the civil rights movements of the 50s and 60s. The exhibition runs through May 1. (Toledo City Paper)
- One Rossford woman has started receiving parking tickets from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for a license plate she turned in on a leased vehicle in 2018. Though it’s not clear what happened to the plate after she turned in the car, she has now officially canceled the registration of the plate with the State of Ohio. (13abc Action News)
