FYI: Snow melt in the buckets by the entrances is provided for residents to sprinkle on icy, or potentially icy, patches of bare pavement for porches, steps, and sidewalks, when appropriate. Snow crews typically do not come out for accumulation of less than two inches. When there is a big snow, please refrain from using the ice melt until after crews have properly shoveled and treated the areas. (For example, sometimes there can be unexpected refreeze, or areas that turn out to need a little more product after the crew has left the site.)
Especially in very cold temperatures, application of ice melt only, and/or without snow removal, is a waste of product (and effort) and can make areas more slippery if not used as recommended. A reminder that the ice melt is provided as an attempt to help make walkways in our community safer and more accessible; it is not intended for use involving personal property.
Thanks for your assistance and patience during this significant weather event!
