Does the Town apply salt or sand to town sidewalks?
No. Salting and sanding of sidewalks would require a significant investment in additional equipment. While the Town has sidewalk tractors, it does not currently own the additional equipment needed for spreading salt and sand. This process also requires significantly more staff time than what the Town has available to both spread the material after each storm, and then clean up the material in the spring time. While the Town sees value in this type of a program, this service cannot be provided within the current levels of funding provided.
