FDL County Didn’t Need To Declare State Of Emergency In Propane Crisis


Unlike Dodge County, Fond du Lac County did not have to declare a state of emergency for the propane shortage. Fond du Lac County Executive Al Buechel says certain criteria have to be met to declare a state of emergency, which would have made the county eligible to provide financial help to those who needed it. He says those conditions were meant in Fond du Lac County. He says to make that declaration five businesses would have had to report trouble operating because of interrupted or diminished propane services. The propane crisis has eased with an influx or more propane into the Midwest. As a result propane prices are beginning to come down.

FDL Using A Lot Of Road Salt This Winter


Road Salt


Fond du Lac Public Works Director Jordan Skiff says the City has used a lot of salt on its roadways this year, but should make it through the rest of the winter without worrying about running out. Skiff says Fond du Lac has fared better than other cities in that regard. However he says the bill will come due when they check their salt sheds and have to see how much they will have to order for next winter. Skiff they tend to use more during the spring time when they see a lot of thawing and refreezing overnight.

Clear Snow & Ice From Gas Meter

After getting another wave of snow earlier this week be sure to clear ice and snow away from your natural gas meter and furnace vent.  Alliant Energy says that the build up can cause the meter or gas appliances like a furnace or hot water heater, to malfunction.  If a vent is blocked, carbon monoxide cold build up in your home or your furnace or hot water heater could stop working.  Newer furnaces and water heaters vent out the side of a home, so you should make sure those are clear as well.
