Murphy City Manager Mike Castro said he was pleased with how the city responded to the challenge posed by the winter storm last week, a period when people’s power and water locally and statewide suffered disruption in service.
“Staff assessed the challenge, prioritized the most important issues, and organized to accomplish assigned work,” Castro said in an email response to questions. “From top to bottom, the organization worked to maintain essential city services.”
He said it was initially difficult to determine the number of power outages within the community but city leaders worked through this issue with Oncor and Farmers Electric.
Castro said the number of traffic accidents was below normal, explaining he thinks residents made the smart move and stayed home during the storm.
