Griffith Public Works Director Rick Konopasek said Griffith didn't encounter issues receiving salt orders from Cargill this winter because the town ordered its entire allotment early in the season.

Griffith now has to buy salt from another entity because it has received the maximum amount it can obtain through the state quantity purchase agreement, Konopasek said.

"We are in a Catch-22 right now" in trying to clear the streets to their full widths to open the stormwater drains, said Public Works Director Rick Konopasek.

The department is also trying to clear the fire hydrants from the snow, with a bit of help from the Fire Department, Konopasek added.
Councilwoman Patricia Schaadt, R-4, saiud some residents are still leaving their cars on the streets and causing problems for the snowplows.
People need to be warned not to park cars across from each other because the plows have difficulty moving between them, she said.
Konopasek said some cars are being parked several feet from the snow banks so passengers can get out of the vehicles.
As a result, residents with alleys were asked to put their refuse in the front, Konopasek said.

The main was fixed about midnight Sunday, Public Works Director Rick Konopasek said.

The break was caused when an Enbridge contractor struck the water main Sunday morning, causing 1 million gallons of water to drain from the south water tower.
Residents living south of Main Street are reminded to boil water before using it for cooking or drinking.
Konopasek said the order will remain in effect until two separate water samples, at least 24 hours apart, are tested for any bacteria concerns.
"We've never had a positive result of a sampling after a water break, so we're anticipating a clean report after the test comes back," Konopasek said.
He said the earliest possible time for the boil order to be lifted would be Wednesday afternoon.

Rick Konopasek, director of public works for Griffith, said crews were called around 2:30 p.m. for a water main break in a backyard in the 900 block of West Ash Street.

Other utilities had to be called in to ensure no lines would be cut before Griffith crews could begin digging to repair the main, Konopasek said. Work on the main began after 6 p.m.
Water service was cut for less than an hour as crews repaired the break, he said.
Residents on West Ash Street and Pine Place should boil their water before consuming it or use bottled water.
Konopasek said the earliest the boil order could be lifted would be by around noon Wednesday. He anticipates the order will be lifted then.
