ST. ALBANS, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Although most of the region has seen its fair share of snowfall this winter, the city of St. Albans is keeping it on the safe side when it comes to their supply of salt to clear the roadways.

During Monday night's St. Albans City Council meeting, it was announced that not only are the city's storage units completely full of salt, but they also have more than 100 tons of salt available for use. It is being stored at a facility in Ohio.

"We are good to go if we get hit by another storm this winter, but we hope we don't see anymore bad weather," St. Albans Mayor Dick Calloway said.

If the salt does not get used this season, it will be ready for use in St. Albans the next time snowy weather hits the region.
