Road crews are gearing up for winter, and Road Supervisor Carl Henry said a major part of that preparation includes having enough road salt on hand.
The problem is, the price of salt has nearly tripled since last winter, Henry told fiscal court members Tuesday. He advised them to accept a bid from Morton's Salt for $120 per ton, because he had checked out prices from other companies, and Morton's was the lowest.
"We're not going to get it any cheaper," he said.
Road salt prices the previous winter topped out at about $48 per ton.
