Why are Xmas decorations in downtown Sandusky still up?
Sandusky Greenhouse manager Tom Speir provided the following response:
The remaining Christmas decorations in the downtown business district and Washington Park will be removed as soon as the snow accumulation is at a manageable level.
Although, substantial rainfall can also be an obstacle if the ground becomes too soft to support the heavy equipmentnecessary to lift the larger displays. Also, in terms of personnel, the same employees responsible for removing the decorations have been busy plowing snow.
We always plan to remove the decorations the week after New Years, but it is not uncommon for the weather to delay the process. Most of the mini lights in the trees have been removed, but the higher ones that require a bucket truck or an extension ladder remain.
