SHALER TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Township officials in Shaler announced Tuesday that the Public Works Department is on “salt conservation” and road treatments will be reduced.

According to a letter released on the township’s website, “The township does not anticipate the supply chain catching up this particular winter.”

The letter went on to say that crews will “attempt to salt hills, intersection and curves” but they will be reducing salt distribution on flat areas.

Shaler residents with whom Channel 11 reporter Courtney Brennan spoke with had nothing but glowing things to say about the crews that plow and salt their roads.

“Normally I have no problem.  I brag all the time, so when I saw that on the news tonight, I was surprised,” said Kim Zurcher.
