“We have anywhere from 27 to 31 trucks out at any given time,” Yager said. “Timing is everything when it comes to salting the streets. Our crews will be watching the ground temperatures, and as soon as it drops to just above freezing, they will start salting.”
Yager said the city has improved its technology in recent years and can track with precision which roads have gone the longest without being salted.
“We know where our trucks have been, and we know exactly where they have dropped salt,” Yager said. “We can really keep track.”
The city's trucks will salt only designated snow routes. Yager said it is important for motorists to stick to those roads when possible because other city streets won't get attention from city crews.
