Niles, IL Patch:
It's Dec. 1. Can snow be far away?
The Village of Niles is planning to combat it with a powerful arsenal of salt brine, calcium chloride and...beet juice. Niles will use an organic product made from beet juice to pre-treat roadways with an anti-icing agent before a storm hits, said Bob Pilat, a manager in the Public Services department.
