Southlake Recovers from the Ice Storm

Southlake sand trucks working the City streets

The cleanup from the 2013 ice storm is under way.  Southlake Public Works put more than 300 tons of sand to work on Southlake’s streets in an effort to help melt the accumulated ice.  Mother Nature will also help out as temperatures are expected to rise into the 40s over the next several days.

Southlake’s first responders were busy as well.  The Southlake Fire Department responded to 38 calls over the three-day period.  Fourteen calls were weather-related including seven medical calls and one for a major car accident.

Southlake Police responded to 182 motorists assists and 5 minor accidents.  During the storm, additional officers were called in to assist with the increased number of calls.

For the week of Monday, December 9, 2013 – Friday, December 13, 2013, Republic Waste Services will resume all trash and recycling collection according to their posted schedule. Due to the delayed pickups at the end of last week, Republic anticipates an increased volume of trash and recycling throughout the week. As such, the collection of limbs, leaves, or other debris may be delayed until later in the week. Questions should be directed to Republic Services at (817) 317-2424.
