At Tuesday night's Suburban Community Council meeting Dick Youngson commented:
"We've got a good number of salt bins in places that normally ice up or or don't melt in winter time so it's really up to people that live in that area to do their own winter gritting, to look after the elderly people who perhaps can't get about so easily as some of us can. Just to make sure that should there be any snow and the council can't cope it's up to us as a community to look after our won."
Highland Councillor Colin MacAulay then said: "Suburban shines in terms of community councils' involvement in terms of this initiative. [...] It's a fantastic effort by this community."
