HACKENSACK, N.J. – A new county road salt plan for treating and removing snow has raised concerns from Hackensack officials, according to NorthJersey.com.

Plans are to pre-treat the 15 roads within city limits as storms near with a "salt slurry," aimed at eliminating up to 3 1/2 inches of snow as it falls, the story said.

The Bergen County Department of Public Works believes this will lower the cost of snow removal and salting, reported NorthJersey.com.

Hackensack City Manager David Troast disagreed, citing his experience with the slurry in Sparta, where the substance was ineffective, the story said.
