Jason Martz, Archbold superintendent of streets, said yesterday, Tuesday, the village will be fine when it comes to road salt for the remainder of the winter.
“We’re still in pretty good shape. I’m not nervous yet,” he said.
Martz estimated the street department workers have used 500 tons of salt to battle icy roads so far this winter. There are another roughly 350 tons left, he said.
Ice that formed overnight Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 10-11, left a thick coating on village streets. It took a heavier application of salt to start the melting process, he said.
Once temperatures warmed, the salt began to work. Vehicles driving over the salted streets broke up the ice and assisted the process.
The village will refill its stockpile of road salt in the spring, he said.
