Don't panic, Homewood. More salt could soon be on its way. Trustees Tuesday will consider spending $121,000 of Homewood's Motor Fuel Tax funds to replenish its supply.
Village Manager Jim Marino recently warned that a particularly harsh winter has put a much bigger dent in Homewood’s salt supply than anticipated, and that what's left would be used sparingly and in priority areas.
Intersections and roads with inclines would be tended to, while side streets would not be getting much attention, Marino cautioned.
“It’s not just us, it’s all municipalities,” Marino said, of the salty situation.
