The continuing bad weather has put unprecedented demands on sodium chloride (road salt) leading to
a national shortage. Many deliveries have been unable to arrive timely due to frozen waterways, limiting
salt from Canada. In the United States, suppliers are not able to mine, ship to stockpiles, and deliver to
end users fast enough to meet the sheer volume of demand. Ships carrying salt from Peru and Chile are
still several weeks away.
The Borough was fortunate enough to completely fill
its stockpile of salt in advance of the impending
snow storms. However, we are told that we cannot expect any further supplies of salt until February 25
at the earliest and PennDOT has limited ability to
offer municipalities salt. This means we have to
control the use of what salt we do have.
Our intent is to use salt only on the main roads, intersections, and steep inclines. We will continue
to plow streets as usual during these snow events but will not be salting them. We hope our residents will understand the issue at hand, but wanted to make
you aware of this as the first snow is expected tomorrow. PennDOT is responsible for plowing and salting Routes 23, 29 and 113 as they go through
