Salt Trucks Ready For Winter Weather

A full bin of salt and six salt trucks. That's what the Putnam County Road Department says it has on hand to deal with snowy conditions today. They have 28 employees who remain on-call to spread that salt. The distribution is based on known trouble spots and on places where law enforcement officers tell them there's a problem. Meanwhile, state road crews got a head start on Wednesday, putting the first layer of salt down on roads like Willow Avenue -- while the sun was still shining.
