Many businesses and establishments readily salt & sand their walkways. Yellow Grit Boxes, provided by the City of Ottawa, are installed at a few key spots around town as well. These boxes are located close to steep hills and in areas where there are many pedestrians, seniors, and persons using mobility devices.
Residents are encouraged to spread the rock salt on slippery spots on sidewalks and other problem areas.
