    Supplier just called and told me that I will not be getting the salt that I ordered. Does anyone know of any suppliers with salt available in Central Wisconsin?

    From what my supplier told me is that most of us will NOT be able to get ANY salt this year. I don't know how that's going to work if someone slips and falls and tries suing you for neglect when we can't even get the salt, I wouldn't call it neglect on the contractor, our hands are tied. It's not like were not salting because it costs us to much money it's because we can't get the crap. There was a huge salt mine in the Detroit area and a german company just bought it and shut it down that's why it's even harder to get it now.

    Thanks guys. I found some and it sure wasn't cheap. Looking for someone that I can contract it through for next year.

    depending on how much you use , i think the minimum is around 500 ton, but you can get ahold of who ever controls the port nearest you. Im in sc wi and there were guys hauling out of the twin citys for salt. I would try there or try maybe greenbay im sure there is someone with a big pile you could buy from. but start looking now for next year. This is only going to get worse. Most of the guys now want it paid for in full at order.
