GOSHEN Goshen's Street Department has gained approval to purchase all the supplies they need to keep the roads clear, without going through the formal approval process.
The Elkhart Truth reports that the city's Board of Public Works and Safety has declared a purchasing policy emergency. It allows the street department to act faster in bad weather. It is in place until March 1st.
Just last week, the street department was given an extra $60,000 dollars to help keep roads safe during the harsh winter.
