What does the town put on the streets to melt ice and snow?

The Town uses Ice Buster, a granular rock salt product pre-wetted with Apex Meltdown to reduce corrosion while increasing de-icing performance on all of the Town’s roadways. Crews are trained on sensible salting techniques, and all snow plow trucks are calibrated to spread only the amount of de-icing salt required to de-ice the roadways. Ice Buster requires fewer applications and delivers enhanced traction eliminating the need for sand. The Town DOES NOT use sand. For more information on Ice Buster, view the town's Snow & Ice Control Plan under "De-icing Material."
