Fear not. Shelby County government is on the case. That’s the message from the office of County Mayor Mark Luttrell, anyhow, as warnings of inclement conditions abound in the local media and via official weather sources.

Here’s a release from Luttrell’s office:

Shelby County Public Works crews are prepared for sleet and snow predicted for the area tomorrow morning.

Trucks with salt and sand will be on Shelby County roads once freezing conditions develop.

"All of our division directors are on alert. We want to ensure citizens stay as safe as possible," said Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr.

Shelby County's new Emergency Operations Center at 1075 Mullins Station Road will be activated should there be large-scale power outages or roads become impassable.

"We'll be monitoring the weather throughout the evening and will be calling in staff if conditions warrant," said Bob Nations, Director of the Shelby County Office of Preparedness.

A Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather Service is in effect until 9 o'clock tomorrow morning.

Forecasters say one to three inches of snow could accumulate in the Shelby County area.
