N0-salt diet for some roads


As winter weather persists, Easton has notified residents that in order to conserve salt supplies, the town will withhold de-icing materials while plowing some roads after storms. Blaming a national shortage, the Department of Public Works posted a notice on the town website saying that roads in town subdivisions were not treated with salt during the Feb. 18 snowstorm, but all roads were plowed. All main and secondary roads will be treated, it said. Officials are also asking residents to report any potholes that have developed on town roads by calling the DPW at 508-230-0800, or by downloading the Commonwealth Connect application to iPhones or Android phones.
