Citizens For A Better Norwood

We interrupt our hiatus for this PSA from Public Works

We just got off the phone with Public Works Director Pete Tepe, who told us there is plenty of salt on hand this year: 319 tons with 180 more tons to be delivered soon. All of the City’s salt is stored inside the old incinerator on Public Works’ property at the end of Harris Avenue. Three Public Works trucks spread about 90 tons of salt for the snowfall on 12/12 and 12/13 over a 13-hour period.

With 1-4 inches of snow predicted to start at about 3:00 a.m. tomorrow, Mr. Tepe has scheduled some employees to start working at 2:30 a.m. “We always hit the main roads like Montgomery and the Norwood Lateral first, then the hilly streets like Hopkins, Section, Marion, and Buxton. We treat the dead end streets last,” he told us. As always, we need to be a little patient while the Public Works guys work their way to our own streets.
