FLOOD ALERT--how much salt did we use this winter?

Tonights rain storm could produce some flooding. If your car is parked near a section of town that usually floods - you might want to move the car to higher ground. I have spoken with the Police Chief and Public Works department and have also been in touch with Con Ed. Everyone is preparing for the storm. The town public works department has been inspecting drains and brooks and clearing them of debris.
If you experience storm related problems you can always contact me. My e mail address is My cell phone is 438-1343 and my home phone is 478-1219.
