HIGHLAND PARK (WWJ) – Officials in struggling Highland Park are on edge as the season’s first big snow approaches this weekend.

The Detroit enclave is down to just one rusty not-so-trusty old plow — which doubles as the city’s only salt truck, Public Works Director Willie Faison says.

They’re working to get it into shape before the half-a-foot of snow expected to fall on Sunday.

“Right here, we replaced all the metal in the bed, washed, welded new pieces in because we’ll put the salt on the truck and it’ll just come right now,” he told WWJ City Beat Reporter Vickie Thomas.

Faison said the one truck in service is “barely working” at this point.

“This is truck number 45. We have truck number 17 that’s down, so we’re just gonna have to pretty much scrap that truck,” he said. “This truck right here is what we have to spread 400 tons of salt that we have sitting in the city salt house right now. It’s not going to make it.”

Faison is reaching out to local municipalities, the media and the public — hoping that someone might have a truck to offer.

“You look at the suburbs, or should I say the small municipalities around us, they’re rolling around in new equipment. Somebody has something that’s a surplus they can, you know, help out Highland Park with.”
