  1. Steve Shaya is great.
    He is salting the entire city today, even though the snow accumulation is less than 1″ and the temperature is above freezing.
    Can you be more cautious over the conditions of our city streets than this?.
    Way to go Steve.
    Thanks God we have enough money in our city for these things.

  2. Steve Shaya doesn’t order the salt; The police department does. (which has been a problem in the past due to unnecessary salting.)
