New Castle has good supply of salt

NEW CASTLE — While this winter has affected road salt supplies throughout Pennsylvania, New Castle has an adequate amount.

Michael Rooney, public works director, said Friday the city was getting another shipment of salt that would boost its supply to about 150 tons. He said that’s more than the city had before Wednesday’s storm.

Rooney said his men have been “great at conserving” the use of salt.
