THE LATEST BOIL ORDER HAS BEEN LIFTED. THANK YOU.
As a reminder, the phone number that people can call to see what snow level Jackson County is on, and if a road is closed is (740) 688-3600. This is a new Jackson number and is not a long distance call.
“Please use this number as it will help take some of the call volume off the dispatchers,” says Jackson County Sheriff Tedd Frazier.
Snow Emergency Classifications:
LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Motorists are urged to drive very cautiously.
LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be very icy. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work. Motorists should use extreme caution.
LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be driving during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.
Here’s a map to show boundaries for voting wards. Each ward has an elected council person, plus there are three “at large” council positions. All voting in the city of Wellston occurs at the Jackson-Vinton Community Action Building (the old Central School) at 118 South New York Avenue. Polls are set up in the gymnasium.
