The update, which said clearing the city's storm drains was a top priority, should help mitigate what it called small-scale "nuisance" flooding.
"It is important to note that officials are not concerned about widespread, watershed-level flooding at this time," said the statement. "At the most, property owners will see only localized 'nuisance' flooding."
Officials said city crews were continuing to clear nearly 22 miles of sidewalks along major streets like Vista Avenue, Broadway Avenue, State Street, Overland Avenue and Americana Boulevard. Meanwhile, the majority of on-street parking in downtown has been cleared of snow and parking garages have resume normal operations.
Property owners are encouraged to find storm drains near their homes and help clear them so snow and rain can drain properly. The Ada County Highway District provided a searchable map of all storm drains in Ada County, which can be accessed by clicking here.
