The Starke County Highway Department crew is prepared for the winter season.

Highway Superintendent Rik Ritzler told the county commissioners this week that everyone is set to go when the snow arrives.

“We’re fully prepared,” said Ritzler. “We have as much salt as we can safely stockpile. We have all of our winter supplies stocked. All of our frontline trucks are in working order. We’ve done multiple snow plow training and dry runs of our routes. The experienced drivers are showing all of the new guys how to operate all of the equipment. The only thing missing is snow and ice.”

There is snow in the forecast this week.
