The recent winter storms have left many of the public sidewalks ice covered and slippery. City Ordinances requires property owners to treat sidewalks with sand and/or salt to provide traction when the ice cannot be removed. Sand provides better traction during colder temperatures. City Streets officials report that salt will be effective until about 6:00 p.m. this evening.

Free sand can be found at the following locations- but only as long as the supply there lasts.
