WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski said he thinks the city has responded well to the above-average snowfall this winter has produced. So far this winter, more than 55 inches have fallen in Greater Lafayette.
Mayor Roswarski appeared on News 18 This Morning’s “Mayor Monday” segment today.
“Overall I think the crews have done a fantastic job,” said Mayor Roswarski. “We really pride ourselves here in the community that every department in the city plows: streets, sanitation, water, waste water [and] parks.”
Mayor Roswarski said finding substances to treat the roads has been more difficult than assembling the manpower to drive the trucks.
“One of the biggest challenges this year has been getting the material,” Roswarski said. “We’ve had salt ordered for four or five weeks that we can’t get.”
He said crews are resorting to a mix of salt, sand and beet juice to thaw the roads.
