Now that ACHD has more dollars to play with, I hope they will get more snowplows on the streets after a snowstorm and keep the streets cleaner and stop using salt and sand. Plowing and using chemicals is far less messy. The parking lots in town don’t use salt and sand to keep their stores cleaner, but we track in salt and sand into our garage, then into our house. With all the salt and sand, it takes months before they get back to clean it up. I never lived anywhere that only used salt and sand, and Boise is a very messy town after a snowstorm.
