Bruderheim has their rock boxes out around town to help combat icy pathways.
The four boxes are filled with rock chips for residents to scoop and spread if town crews havn't had a chance to sweep yet.
"Just like anything else, it's about public safety," said Bruderheim's director of Public Works, Dennis Tomuschat. "It's important that they have a safe environment and that's one alternative to make sure they have the ability to cross or walk our sidewalks safely."
The program is far from new to the town, it's been happening for a number of years now.
"Lots of our seniors, they like that ability to throw that down if they have difficulty walking or if they're in a walker."
The rock chips will be available for residents until after the spring thaw.
If there isn't a scoop or cup in a box, contact the Town of Bruderheim at 780-796-3731.
