Last week the City of Springfield contracted with DRC Emergency Services on a nearly $20 million clean-up of debris from the recent ice storm. City officials said then that the job could take a couple months.
No time to start like the present. From Louise Whall, the city's public-info boss (aka the Duchess of Debris): "The DRC Emergency Services crews have left their staging areas and are moving into their work zones across the City." Expect good footage on the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts.
