LIVINGSTON, NJ –The Livingston Township Council discussed salt and potholes at its meeting on Monday.

Mayor-elect Michael Silverman asked Township Manager Michelle Meade if Livingston would have salt for the storm expected to hit the area on Wednesday.

Meade mentioned that while there is a statewide salt deficit, Livingston will have salt.

“We got delivery late last week and will have enough salt if it is used sparingly to salt hills, main arteries and school approaches,” Meade said.

Meade also said that if the roads are dry, the township will brine first to help with early snowfall.

She also said that instead of going directly to salt companies as Livingston has done in the past that Essex County will now be distributing salt to municipalities.

Mayor Michael Rieber said that he is getting a lot of questions about potholes and offered a suggestion for the public.

“The public should go to the township website and click on the button that says ‘Submit a Service Request’ and let us know where the potholes are,” said Reiber.
