STOW, OH (WOIO) - An active winter storm season throughout the northeast has depleted road salt supplies in the region, forcing the City of Stow to begin conserving its salt to make sure there is an adequate supply to treat main roads, hills, curves and bridges.

The City continues to receive road salt deliveries in small amounts. 

The extremely cold temperatures render salt less effective and it takes longer to melt the snow. 

The City says they will use as much liquid de-icing agent as possible during sub-zero weather in an effort to provide safe driving conditions for the community.
