The city of Decatur released the following taped statement from Mayor Jim Baskett about the city’s response to the Jan. 28 snow storm.

Watch:

Baskett planned to give the state of the city speech on Jan. 28, but postponed it once the snow began to fall and schools started dismissing early.

Some of the highlights from the mayor’s statement:

– “All told, about 30 tons of sand and salt were spread on city streets.”

– “Police officers, firefighters and volunteers checked on more than 80 seniors and other vulnerable members of our community.”

– “I join with the many parents who are thankful that City Schools of Decatur students were able to make it home safely Tuesday afternoon. We are fortunate to live in a community where many students could walk home.”
