Town may build larger salt shed


Last week’s blizzard will result in a bigger salt shed for Canton, if Department of Public Works Superintendent Michael Trotta gets his way. The town’s shed holds 1,000 tons of salt, and Trotta said 3,000 to 4,000 tons would better match the town’s needs for an entire winter. As far as equipment, Trotta recommended against bigger trucks, which would be needed only during the worst storms. Trotta deployed 41 pieces of equipment and hired 29 contractors for last weekend’s cleanup, which took 20 hours of work after the snow fell.
