Road Snow and Ice Removal

February 22, 2015 – This morning three DPW managers, including Director, Dan Santos, went to several roads and “plowed” them. There was a minimum amount of slush to plow. Not much melting had occurred and they each concluded that plowing would just leave a sheet of ice on the road. They have enough salt to make a 4 to 1 ratio of sand to salt and have decided to have crews sand/salt all the secondaries. This process should also take about eight hours to complete.

With the temperature expected to go well below freezing after today’s thaw, surface conditions will become slippery.

Take precautions when driving and walking.
