Snow-clogged streets cause aldermen concern

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The snow-clogged side streets have some aldermen wondering if their neighborhoods are being deliberately neglected.

Alderman Roderick Sawyer said that when he asked for more salt to completely clear the streets, he was told the trucks weren't bringing any more.

The city acknowledges they have been rationing salt, but only because it doesn't work well in very cold temperatures.

The Streets and Sanitation Commissioner told the Chicago Sun-Times, "if we keep pouring more salt on top of it, it's akin to throwing that away. I don't want to do that."
