Taylor said this winter has been rough for crews. The city has gone through about half of its 6,000 tons of salt, but its stockpile is still in good shape, Taylor said.
"We are replenishing our supplies," Taylor said. "Our budget is in good shape when it comes to the purchase of the salts."
The only worry Taylor has is that road conditions in Ohio -- where the city's salt supplier, Morton Salt, is based -- could delay shipments. But, there haven't been any issues so far, Taylor said.
Charleston's Public Works has 36 people manning its 18 salt trucks and a host of support staff that load them with salt and mechanics who work on vehicles. Taylor said his staff is very dedicated to keeping roads clear for drivers.
Saturday night's "thunder snow" had crewmembers volunteering to return to work after having been dismissed for the night, Taylor said.
"They called us and told us they were turning around and coming back, because they knew they were going to be needed," Taylor said. "The workforce that the city has is a stand up bunch of guys."
Merchant predicted the area wouldn't see any snow or rain with the cold temperatures for the rest of the week.
"We're dry right now until the weekend," he said.
Some relief might come Thursday, as temperatures are forecasted to reach the mid to upper 30s, Merchant said.
In Wheeling, the Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack rescheduled live greyhound races because of expected cold temperatures. Wheeling Island said Monday that no live races will be held Tuesday and Wednesday. Live races will be held Thursday and simulcast racing will remain open every day.
