A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:
1. Snow Removal - Snow removal is preferred to de-icing with chemicals. 2. Selecting Deicers - Applications of chicken grit applied around entrances and steps along with sand for the roads, main entrances, stop sign areas, and sidewalks. Apply only as needed using minimum quantities. Small quantities of deicers mixed with sand or sprayed on hard to maintain areas. 3. Maintenance After Deicing - Sweep or clean up accumulated sand, chicken grit from entrances, sidewalks, steps, and roads as soon as possible after the road surface clears.
