Day 3 of Leon
It is officially day 3 of winter storm Leon and the people of Polk County are still dealing with the effects. Some road ways in Cedartown have begun to clear, however many of these roadways are still covered in ice. Cedartown road crews were able to open the viaduct on East Avenue, however the bridge on College Street is still closed. John Hand Road between John Phillips Road and Lake View Drive remains closed and the intersection of College Drive and Cherokee Road is still posing a problem for motorist. Cedatown city offices will re-open today at 12:00, however many businesses are remaining closed. No decision on Polk County Schools has been given yet for Friday. With the freezing temperatures the dangers of freezing water pipes becomes an issue once again for Polk County. Residents are reminded to take precautions against freezing pipes until the temperatures reach above freezing.
