City crews using salt supply sooner than usual

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Yet another blast of winter weather Thursday morning – and did you know – it’s not even winter yet? The Central Services trucks in Quincy were out once again Thursday morning clearing snow.

Central Services officials said they are digging into their salt supply earlier than years past.

Director of Central Services, Kevin McClean, said this winter they have ordered 4,000 tons of salt which cost $200,000 and so far they have used around 200 tons of salt this winter. McClean said even though the snow has come early, the supply should last.

“I don’t think we will have any issues, at least I always hope that way, but yeah I think we’ll be fine,” said McClean, talking about the salt supply.

McClean said even though roads should be clear Thursday evening, take it slow. He added there will be trucks on standby to treat any slicks spots.
