The Town has made a sand/salt mixture available for residential use free of charge for sidewalks and driveways.
A bright blue self-serve depot has been set up in the parking lot of at the Matt Krol Park, 245 Riverview Dr. Those taking advantage of the offer must bring their own shovel and bucket.
Town senior communications advisor Laure Drukier says the mixture will be available as long as the freeze/thaw cycles and cold weather continues.
"Residents should take only what their family will use to help people keep their homes safe," explains Drukier." One bucket should last for the rest of the winter."
The program is nothing new and has been a courtesy extended to residents for years by the town when winter sets in.
