Council Bluffs Public works spent Wednesday morning making sure snow removal gear was ready for the coming winter.

Crews checked the trucks to insure blades, engines and sand application equipment were all in good working order.

Special attention went to calibrating the chemical application gear. The city uses a combination of calcium chloride, salt brine and beet juice. The ratios of those ingredients are varied depending on the nature of the storm.
