Prince George's County government closes
The Prince George's County government closed Wednesday--its first time doing so since the dawn of Snowpocalypse--in light of the merciless pounding the weather has dealt the region.
The announcement, made early Wednesday morning, said, "This decision was made due to the record snow events that have hit the region over the past six days, producing more than 40 inches of snow across the region."
However, public safety employees and those plowing the roads will still be working, said county spokesman John Erzen.
In addition, a public hearing that was scheduled to be held by Thursday on the FY2011 budget has been postponed. A new date has not yet been set.
The County Council also postponed the sixth annual Prince George's County Council Black History Celebration, "Trials to Triumphs: The Historical Journey of African-American Communities in Prince George's County." The event was scheduled for Feb. 10, and has been rescheduled to Feb. 17, at 11 a.m.
