In previous years, most of the neighborhoods were sheets of ice while the main roads are pavement because they were salted. Any information would be appreciated as my inquiries go unanswered."
To answer Alex's question, Patch asked Greg Rassel, the director of Royal Oak's Department of Public Service. Here's his reply:
"We will be salting intersections as needed. We are currently transition from leaf season to snow so the full complement of trucks is not available. It is important to slow down this time of year."
