Gazebo Gazette

Due to freezing rain Tuesday, January 16, 2024, authorities with Harrison County Road and Public Works Departments began closing bridges and roads.  Several started filling with ice because of the rain.  Despite the sun coming out, the temperatures (below freezing) may not allow the ice to melt soon.
