Grit spreading in Lincolnshire last year
Special snow patrol squads could be set up in Lincolnshire this winter to clear the pavements.
Darrell Redford has suggested that employees could be taken off their normal duties to clear snow and make pavements safe.
He said:"During extreme weather we prioritise the carriageway to be cleared to keep the traffic flowing.
"We don't always have the men to clear the footways, so any assistance in that area is going to be very useful."
Darrell is now waiting for an official response from the local authorities.
Last winter, Lincolnshire County Council Highways Department were out most nights during January salting almost 2,000 miles of county roads as motorists faced treacherous driving conditions caused by snow and ice.
The council have already stockpiled 30,000 tonnes of grit to ensure the road network remains clear this winter.
