Springfield Public Works / Streets Departments used its “new” grader to move snow following last week’s blizzard. The City of Springfield recently traded in a 1974 Caterpillar grader for the 2009 John Deere 670G grader.  Streets Department Superintendent Gene Haas said the grader “runs like a Cadillac,” compared to the machine that was traded in on the purchase agreement.  The Streets Department had a lot of snow to plow last week.  Haas figures Springfield received about 9 inches of snow February 2 and 3. The grader was used open the streets in town and the streets crew later used the blower to pick up snow that was trucked to areas in Riverside Park and Salonek’s Pit.
