Salt scarce, overtime up in Norwalk

The winter continues to take its toll on Norwalk's salt supply and overtime budget.

Richard Moore, general services department superintendent, said Wednesday the city has about 500 tons of salt left.

The city has 160 tons on order, per its contract, but that salt "will get here when it gets here."

Moore said street crews are only salting bridges, hills and "bad areas" to try and conserve salt.

"This is one of the worst," Moore said, talking about this winter. Moore has been with the city since 1986. "The guys are tired. This is really hard on them."
