City of Milton road conditions for Saturday, Jan. 9

MILTON, GA., Jan. 8, 2010 - The icy conditions on Milton roads persist, and City Hall staff urges citizens to staff off local roads for their safety.

According to road crews, ice spots persist intermittently on most roads, especially the less frequently traveled ones.

Therefore, if citizens must go out, Milton's Public Safety and Public Works departments ask that motorists drive very slowly. Matt Marietta, Milton's emergency management coordinator, advises apparently clear roads have hidden ice patches that will cause drivers to spin out if they are not paying attention or driving too fast.

Following are the roads that still have a potentially dangerous amount of ice on them:

IMPASSABLE
** New Providence Road
** Dinsmore Road

POOR DRIVING CONDITIONS
** Dorris Road
** Bullpen Road

I loved the sheets of ice on Deerfield Pkwy yesterday on my ride home - right outside City Hall. Great job.

Tim,

If you're going to copy and paste from other sites then please check to see that you have pasted an accurate representation of the original document.

The weather advisory update on the City Of Milton's website does not contain the mistakes as per your post e.g. The icy conditions on Milton roads persist, and City Hall staff urges citizens to 'STAFF' off local roads for their safety".

As a result of your mistakes people are ridiculed and subject to unfair and negative commentary on this blog.

Thanks for the inquiry. However, the post we have listed here as well as any other from the city are what we receive via email from them.

All we do is cut and paste.

Thus, it could be a situation where the City website and emails are off a bit due to which one was most recently updated.

Do ya think the city corrects the errors after they are pointed out?
Milton has quite a few good proofreaders!

Get a life and worry about something more important.

Importance is relative, like most Milton imports thinking their thoughts are superior to others.
Life in Milton is great with sewer, businesses and Habitat all right around the corner.

To the 2:59 poster: awww puddin!

Hold on... let me set my tea cup down.

GREAT GLORY Y'ALL! The City Of Milton sent out not one BUT TWO press releases with a typo. (GASP!)

I feel faint...

"Staff" and "STAF" are the words or wannabe words in question. The first email was sent out January 8th. The subject line contained a typo ("STAF") Below you will see the email from January 9th containing the typo "STAFF". The intended word for both emails obviously being "stay"
If you would like a copy of the offending emails call me and I will forward them to you.


SOOOOOOOO Anonymous at 2:59 if you are going to ridicule Tim make sure you at least have your facts straight.
But before you ridicule the city for their typos just remember that people make mistakes everyday.
You just did.

instead of focusing on typos - what about the crappy response of Fulton and Milton in getting the slick spots sanded! Took 8 cars into trees along my side yard (Hopewell Rd), 24 hours, and 10 calls till they finally straightened it out. Sounds like we need to address this lack of response before the next ice event.

mix up and store a huge pile of salt and sand or whatever they use in advance and organize a pickup brigade to get it distributed to the areas when needed. problem solved.

Thought you formed the City of Milton to get away from Fulton County.

Why was Fulton involved in clearing your roads?

All I know is I should have bought bread and milk like every southerner did in advance and I wouldn't have dared the roads and damaged my car. Wasn't worth it. But I learned a very important lesson: when living in the Sourh, do what the Southerners do. Buy bread and milk and stay home.

Last time I heard, there are not many Southerners around here.
