Fairfax 'snow summit' to examine blizzard response
Fairfax County officials will hold a two-hour televised "snow summit" this afternoon to discuss the county and state response to the paralyzing back-to-back February snowstorms that dumped more than four feet of snow in some parts of the Washington region.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors' transportation committee has invited representatives of the Virginia Department of Transportation, Fairfax County Public Schools, the county's facilities management department and public safety agencies to attend the meeting, which starts at 3:30 p.m. It is the first snow summit of its kind since a blizzard blanketed the East Coast in January 1996.
The hearing will be broadcast live on Channel 16, the county government's public access channel, and online.
