Sand Pile Dwindling in Monkton, VT

Some people in Monkton might be taking advantage of free sand.
MONKTON, Vt. - Some people in Monkton might be taking advantage of free sand.

The town puts out a pile of sand when it's icy out for residents to take a bucket or two. Chair of the Monkton Selectboard Steve Pilcher told FOX 44 and ABC 22 that people have been driving away with truckloads of sand from the pile.

He says they believe some might be using the sand to make money by charging other people to sand their driveway.

The selectboard has about $22,000 budgeted for sand this winter and doesn't want to go over budget.

If the problem continues, one possible fix will be to put a fence around the sand pile.
