Crews didn't have to use as much last season, so the city has plenty of salt available for treating the area roadways this winter, said Mayor Byron Brown.
"We still have approximately 11,000 tons of salt currently in stock here at the Broadway garage and the department's Fuhrmann Boulevard site," said Brown.
DPW Commissioner Steve Stepniak says the city has to buy a certain amount of salt each season. With that much left over from last season, it'll help in the city's budget, Stepniak said.
Both Brown and Stepniak inspected the city's snow plows on Tuesday.
