Brigg Town Council last night showed it is thinking well ahead by agreeing to buy further salt bins well before the worst of the weather arrives.
Last winter, bins were provided on Almond Grove, Springbank and Churchill Avenue and residents were invited to take what material they needed to spread near their properties.
At last night's meeting of the Brigg Town Council Planning and Environment Committee, it was agreed to add a couple more for this winter - on Glebe Road (close to West Square) and in the St James' Road/O'Hanlon Avenue area.
Coun Jane Kitching suggested Glebe Road as a priority area, saying it could become "shocking" underfoot during wintry weather.
Coun Ben Nobbs suggested the new bin should be placed close to where the old lock-up garages used to be located.
Brigg Town Council can buy bins at £130 a time from the North Lincolnshire authority, which is again offering to restock them with salt when necessary, as it keeps extensive supplies in hand, not just for use in our town but across the district.
Initial salt bins were provided in towns and villages by North Lincolnshire Council, on which Brigg and Wolds' Coun Nigel Sherwood is the Cabinet Member for Highways and Neighbourhoods.
