    I had a meeting with one of the cities we do contract work for and I ask the director of the service Dept and he said "I can't get any more salt right now". And to add to that he still needs more to finish the year with. Does anybody have that going around you?

    Salt is still out there. Kimber has salt, as do others. It's all a matter of what you're willing to pay for it vs. its availability.

    That community you work with should be able to buy some of the 100K tons ODOT released for cities to purchase (if still available), but as I understand it, they have to find a way to truck it from X location back to their place.

    What happen is the city didn't go with ODOT in the contract. They are part of a local contract sometime like 36 other city are part of. I don't know if the total of 36 is also including private companies too.

    Have whomever from the city you are working with call me. I do have some salt available. If your city ends up buying the salt from ODOT (usually out of the ODOT Warrensville yard) I would be willing to truck it to them. I've done this for one city so far and have quotes several others. I can also provide a piler if they need one.

    I'll drop a line to him. Than it will just be up to him to figure out what he want to do.
    I'm just luck I decided to buy double from last year BS.

    Thanks
