The Council has adequate stockpiles of salt and further quantities are available if required. The NRA have been tasked to source all salt supplies for the Country.
The Council has also mobilised an additional workforce of 500 this morning (29th November) to commence clearing footpaths, shopping areas and public transport hubs.
The Council would encourage all householders and shopkeepers to attend to the footpaths outside their dwelling and premises, particularly where no salting of the roads has been carried out.
