Oswego County Sends Highway Crews and Equipment to Buffalo


OSWEGO – Oswego County is lending some of its snow removal expertise and equipment to the city of Buffalo to assist in the removal of this week’s massive lake effect snowfall.

The Oswego County Department of Public Works answered the call and sent equipment and a highway crew to Buffalo Friday to help with the massive snowfall cleanup. The photo was taken following a lake effect event in Oswego County a few years ago.

County Legislature Chairman Kevin Gardner approved a request from the State Office of Emergency Management Thursday afternoon for additional snow removal assistance.

“We’re used to these types of events and are certainly happy to help them out,” said Chairman Gardner.

County Highway Superintendent Kurt Ospelt said a loader, three 10-wheel trucks and a service truck went to Buffalo this morning (Nov. 21).

“We expect them to be in Buffalo for about three days,” he said.

More than a foot of lake effect snow fell Thursday night in sections of Oswego County.
