The price of changing the city's ice-clearing practices is a slippery slope.
That according to a report before councillors Monday night, which says options to mitigate the ice build-up we experienced on residential roads and sidewalks last December comes at a cost of about $2 million.
The report considers things like reducing the amount of snowfall required to get plows out on the streets, and increasing the amount of salt used.
Yet another report will look at the possibility of removing snow at the end of driveways after roads are plowed. Doing that comes in at a cost of about 5.5 million dollars.
