An advisory from the town of Pulaski regarding snow removal

In anticipation of the forecast for significant snow accumulation, we would like to make the citizens of the Town of Pulaski aware of the following change(s) to our normal snow removal procedures.

Due to the harsh snow storms in the northeastern area, the Town of Pulaski along with many other localities have not had our salt orders filled. The larger cities and Departments of Transportation nationwide take priority over municipalities as far as how/when the salt is delivered.

Public Works crews will begin snow removal efforts immediately. However, we will not be putting down salt until the end of the snow fall in an effort to maximize its capabilities and use it in the most efficient manner possible. If we receive the forecasted accumulation, we will be working primarily to keep the main highways open and clear. These streets will include Rt. 11, Rt. 99, E. Main St, Bob White Blvd. and Memorial Drive.

Town crews will continue to remove snow throughout the night as necessary, but the main streets will be our PRIMARY focus during that time. If the accumulation is within normal range, town crews will be dispersed to their individual routes simultaneously. If accumulation is significant, we will not move into secondary and residential areas until Thursday morning or when the snow fall has ended. Again, we will still refrain from putting down salt until the end of the snow storm as we are in very limited supply.

We would like to take this opportunity to suggest that citizens not be on the road unless it is absolutely necessary during this snow fall period. If you must be out, please use caution and keep as much distance as possible between your vehicle and snow removal equipment for the safety of all. Also, if off street parking is available, we ask that you please utilize it in an effort to provide the necessary space for our snow removal equipment to enter/exit streets as safely as possible.

We appreciate your patience and understanding of this issue and apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause to town citizens.

    If you would have watched the News on Channel 7 you would be aware that there is in fact a shortage and Pulaski is not the only locality that is suffering! Instead of commenting with such negativity try to get more information first.

    It is truly unfortunate that salt is running low. I think we all need to come together as citizens and throw all our salt on the road to show this darn snow who’s boss in this here county. Why doesn’t the government just go to walmart and buy a buttnch of salt. Just like my fellow citizen that posted before my the only thing I hate more than no salt is English class.

    The town has been out since the snow started we may not agree on certain things but town workers have been out doing what they can do. This town may not have the funds for certain things but they are doing the best they can with what they got.

    Maybe the town could use some methadone on the streets instead of salt since there is no shortage at the great clinic they let come to town.

    You have no idea what you are talking about citizen. There is actually a salt shortage nation wide. This was reported by several newspapers and tv stations back in January. Here is a link that may shed some light on the subject you know nothing about,0,5159796.story#axzz2tB27hHbx
