Roads need more salt

In the aftermath of this winter's first significant snowfall, many streets in our village have effectively become ice skating rinks.

Much of North High Street is covered by roughly a fourth of an inch of ice.  The National Weather Service predicts that the maximum temperature will not go above the freezing point during the 48 hour period starting at 10 am today.  Yet North High Street does not appear to have been salted.  If it has been salted, it is plain that the quantity utilized was insufficient given the circumstances.  After driving around the village this morning in order to run some errands, it became clear that North High Street is not an exception.

I hope that the village manager takes prompt corrective action.
