[ARCHIVED] Town Facilities Open at Noon Tuesday

Holly Springs town offices and parks and recreation facilities will open at noon Tuesday because of the icy weather. Tuesday night's Town Council meeting has been canceled.

Wake County Public Schools are closed Tuesday.

Town parks and recreation programs and classes mirror Wake County Public Schools on weather closings and delays.

However, parks and recreation facilities will be open Tuesday afternoon since residents have other reasons for visiting, such as to register for an upcoming class, take part in a rental, or to exercise at the Hunt Center.

Waste Industries said early Monday night that it hoped to begin Tuesday's garbage and recycling collection at 10 a.m. However, it will re-evaluate conditions early Tuesday morning, so further delays are possible.

Crews are prepared to work Saturday, if needed, to complete the week's collection.

Road clearing equipment was placed ahead of the storm in known trouble spots such as hills to ensure availability, Public Works Director Luncie McNeil said Monday afternoon.

"As soon as the ice begins, they'll be laying down a layer of sand and salt on hills and bridges," he said. "They will be working through the night."

A second shift of Public Works crew members will be ready to take over Tuesday morning.

McNeil urged people to stay off the roads after the icy weather starts so that road clearing crew members can do their job.

Holly Springs police also urged residents to avoid any unnecessary travel during and immediately after the storm. Those who must drive should watch for road-clearing crews, police said. Allow more distance for slowing or stopping in traffic.
