The Department of Public Works will be placing bins of sand at some locations around town for people to come grab a bucket to sprinkle on their sidewalks if ice builds up. Bins will initially be located at the intersection of Platinum and Excelsior Streets and at the Civic Center, with more locations to follow.
Snow shovels are also available for loan to local residents at the Butte-Silver Bow Maintenance Center, 1700 Civic Center Road, during regular business hours. Shovels are free to use. Interested residents need to bring a form of ID listing their current address.
