According to Talladega City Schools Superintendent Doug Campbell, city schools closed at 11 a.m., but no final decision had been reached regarding Wednesday classes. Campbell said he would make an announcement either late Tuesday afternoon or early Wednesday morning.
The situation was similar for city offices, according to city manager Brian Muenger. City roads were closed at noon on Tuesday, and the sand trucks had been deployed.
“The traffic was starting to dissipate, but we were still having some issues with trucks sliding around” as of 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. “I haven’t made a decision yet about tomorrow morning, but I’d say there’s just about no way city offices will be open on time. We’ll make a decision on the city’s web site and Twitter around 5 a.m.,” he said.
City administrative personnel were dismissed about 11 a.m., but emergency responders and public works crews remained on duty.
County and state offices were also closed by lunchtime Tuesday, and it remained unclear when they would reopen.
