Commissioner Thom Schafer publically thanked Monicals Pizza owner Mark Shanks for feeding workers involved in the recent snow removal effort. Schafer also noted that the sand supplier was in a contract dispute with another party and would not be able to deliver sand to the street department.
After the meeting, city engineer Alan Spesard noted that a mixture of sand and salt is used on city streets and county roads. Although there is a stockpile of salt from recent milder winters, they are now “going through it”. He added that they are looking to get sand from another company.
