HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Things went pretty smooth during the city's first real snow test on Friday, according to city leaders.
Mayor Steve Williams says there are four to five trucks on the roads at all times.
Streets Department Supervisor Joe Day says everyone in the department is working 12-hour shifts to keep the roads clear.
Plenty of advance notice from meteorologists, as well as a chance to pre-treat the roads and the ability to get the trucks on the road as soon as the snow started to fall, made Friday a little bit easier.
The only real trouble spot was out of the department's control.
"The problem this time was when it hit, it stuck immediately, so it caused hazards right off the get go ... Even the areas that we pre-treated, it still became a problem," Joe Day said.
The city prioritizes the 189 miles of roads it's responsible for by starting with the hills, then the main roads and then the side streets.
Williams says they always reassess situations to see how the things went. He said Friday afternoon he was pleased about the day's response.
