OYSTER BAY - Trucks for the town of Oyster Bay were out in full force sanding and salting the roads during Thursday's winter storm.
Town of Oyster Bay officials told News 12 Long Island that supplies of salt were a concern. However, they say workers were mixing sand with the salt to prolong the supply.
Department of Public Works representatives say there was enough salt to get the town through the latest round of winter weather. Brookhaven Highway Superintendent Dan Losquadro says the salt-sand mixture is not as effective, making the roads more dangerous than they have been during previous storms.
Losquadro says he's gone off contract to try to get more salt. He says he wants towns across the Island to band together next winter and get another salt supplier.
News 12 reached out to state-approved supplier Atlantic Salt for a response but has not heard back.
