How do cities, towns and residents deal with the recent deluge of snow?

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Over the past two weeks we have seen several very serious snow storms, with more predicted to be on the way.  Municipalities and residents continue to dig out and assess any damage to their property.

This week on 22News InFocus the topic is the effect of these snow events on communities.  We’ll be discussing the economic impact of the recent weather, from the strain on the budgets of cities and towns to protecting your property from damage.

You’ll hear from a 22News Storm Team meteorologist about weather patterns.  We’ll have the director of Springfield’s Department of Public Works, who will discuss the costs and difficulties of multiple storms.  A home repair professional will give tips on how to prevent damage to your home and other structures.
