County, cities sitting on excess salt, preparing for usage

The Morning Journal - Loraine and Erie Counties  - Although salt supply tonnage is difficult to estimate for the rest of the winter, both the county and its municipalities are sitting on an excess of salt from the previous winter. Salt is ordered throughout the winter as needed, with the county averaging a little over 11,000 tons a year over the past 15 years, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.

County tonnage: Going into the new season, assistant county engineer Bob Klaiber said the county has 5,000 tons of salt on hand as of mid-December. This amount of leftover tonnage is a bit more than average in comparison to previous years, Klaiber said.
