After surviving the first winter storm of the season, Bowling Green city officials are beginning to communicate the lessons that city personnel learned during the ice storm that hit the area last Friday.
“We are hoping that we can kind of give our residents a heads up on what they can expect for future winter storms,” Barb Allison said during a recent joint interview with public works director Bo Stinnett and a reporter with the Bowling Green Times.
