County Holds Snow Summit to Prepare for Winter Storm Season
Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett detailed the County’s plans for the upcoming snow season at the Snow Summit held on November 2. The event included all County agencies with snow removal responsibilities to assess and prepare for the possibility of winter storms. New initiatives this year included a revised online portal that provides snow information in a more user-friendly format and a pilot project that will compare the effectiveness of salt brine versus salt in treating 18 miles of roads. If salt brine is proven to be as effective, MCDOT could reduce the amount of salt required for winter storm treatment, which would also benefit environmental quality. The Snow Summit Presentation is available here.
