Sand And Salt Mix Available At These 2 Pittsfield Fire Stations
The recent icy weather here in The Berkshires has got folks dealing with some problems in terms of ice on their sidewalk and/or driveways.
With the weather not looking to warm up back above the freezing mark until Thursday of this week, the City of Pittsfield wants to remind you that there is some complimentary sand and salt mix available for residents.
The Department of Public Services announces that sand piles have been placed at three locations around the city.
- Barker Rd. Fire Station (ENGINE 1)
- Peck's Rd. Fire Station (ENGINE 5)
- 37 Elm St. (at the intersection of Deming and Elm)
Sand will be available for pickup by Pittsfield residents for their own personal use throughout the winter season. Residents are requested to limit their pickups to 50 pounds (one 5 gallon pail) per visit.
Users of these piles are requested to report suspected abuse (loading of pickup trucks, etc.) to the DPS Highway Division office (499 9314). -cityofpittsfield.org
Due to the recent icy weather, I did notice that the Peck's Rd. fire house was running low on sand already, just an FYI.
