Salt Distribution Policy

Each village house address will receive one bag of snow-melt salt. The salt provided to residents is to be used for removing ice from exterior stairs and walkways immediately adjacent to the house.  The bag of salt should be kept inside the house out of the weather. If your house did not have a bag of salt when you moved in during the fall, please place a Work Order with facilities in the beginning of October.

In addition, if the residents have not received a bag of salt by early November, then they should contact facilops@oberlin.edu with the work order number associated with that request.  

If the first bag residents have is fully used, residents can place a Work Order with the Office of Facilities Operations to have a second bag delivered. If a house needs more than the two bags provided by the College, then residents will have to purchase additional bags.
