Town Salt/Sand Materials (Tailings): The Town of Brigham purchases salt and sand materials to create tailings for use on Town Roads during the winter months.  During our most recent snow events, a significant amount of the Town’s tailings supply has disappeared without notification to the Town. The Town is required to keep an inventory of the amount of material used during each snow event.  While the Town is aware of the amount of tailings used in our plowing efforts, it is impossible to keep accurate records when our supply is being taken without our knowledge.  Though we often have a supply on hand for residents to purchase by the pail (i.e., 5-gallon pail), this is intended to be offered sparingly and only with permission from the Town once we have assessed our supply.  If you have taken some of the Town’s tailings, please contact the Town as soon as possible to report your usage of materials. All use of these materials should be requested prior to obtaining any materials by contacting Royce Nelson at (608) 319-5398.
