Report on Icy Complications

Today’s weather is rather balmy, compared with last week’s frigid temperatures. At this week’s Laurens CPW meeting, the Commissioners were advised of complications experience by the utility during the recent cold weather. The CPW received may calls from customers regarding frozen pipes, and commissioners were advised that a vehicle struck an object in a safety zone, which had been set up to keep vehicles out of a patch of ice formed from a water leak. The incident reportedly resulted in a driver being charged with Leaving the Scene of an Accident.
