Gurnee is sorry for running out of road salt

Following the 2007 snow season in which Gurnee was slammed for not plowing roads properly, egg met face again with Gurnee’s salt shortage and announcement that only major streets and intersections would be salted. Not only was that the plan, but it appears to have been the action as well.

Granted, several municipalities suffered from salt shortages this year, but the bad press just keeps piling up in Gurnee. Last Monday, Mayor Kristina Kovarik issued an official apology for all the trouble.

That’s last week’s news, though. This Monday, more snow fell on Gurnee and surrounding suburbs. Weather forecasters are predicting up to six inches of snow by early Tuesday. What can residents expect by way of snow removal? Did the river thaw enough for the salt barge to wiggle through and deliver its precious cargo of ice-melting magic?

Cheer up, Gurnee. We understand. At least you acknowledged resident frustration and made plans for a plan, so to speak.
