Metropolis mayor asks residents to stay off streets
The Metropolis, Illinois, mayor is asking people to stay off the streets and away from areas of damage after storms Wednesday.
Mayor Billy McDaniel says everyone except storm relief crews is asked to stay off the town’s streets. In an announcement Wednesday evening, McDaniel says "failure to abide by this request will result in arrests."
McDaniel says the city wants to remind cleanup contractors that they have to register with the city and have a permit to do any tree cutting, debris removal, or other storm-related work. You can get the permit at city clerk’s office in City Hall.
