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.
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.
