(HOPE) - The town of Hope will be having some difficulties dealing with snow over the next few days.

David Clouse, manager of Hope Utilities reported to the Town Council last night that one of the town's two snowplows is inoperable. He said the more than 20-year-old truck appears to have blown a head gasket. Clouse said that he believed the single remaining plow would be enough to get through this morning's weather but if forecasts for later in the week hold up, the town could be in trouble.

The Town Council gave him the emergency authority to either contract with someone to help clear the town's streets, to rent a fill-in snowplow or to make emergency repairs to the truck. Council members said the town would look for a more permanent solution once the weather clears.
