When it comes to constructing a new building, especially one funded by taxpayers, there are a lot of things to consider. How big will the building be, what will it's primary purpose be, and what will it be made out of?

These are some of the things that were discussed and decided at the Thorndike town meeting on Saturday. The town's taxpayers have decided it would be best if the town's new sand and salt shed were constructed out of steel. And, it was clearly a hot topic, because more than 100 residents attended.

We're excited to see how the new sand and salt shed will help expedite the treatment of slippery roads next winter and help to keep town residents and passers-through as safe as possible.
