Giant Salt Pile Returns to Columbia Street

After a noisy weekend's work, the salt pile at Columbia and Kane street has been restored to its pre-winter state: looming over the neighborhood and contributing a thin layer of fine powder over nearby cars, windowsills and rear yards.

If you are fed up with this nuisance and the apparent disregard with which the salt importer treats our neighborhood (leaving the pile uncovered for weeks at a time and loud noise from machinery throughout the night) you can do the following:

Sign the petition at: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/removethesaltpile/
