    I have an account that I bid about 10K on seasonal for labor. Average snowfall for the area is roughly 45 annually. The property in its entirety requires about a ton of salt per application which I have priced separate at $250 per ton. What I need to know is how do I judge the amount of salt I will use? This is a new client, so I am unsure as to how much of a shallacking he is going to consider suitable. To further complicate the issue, he is the new property manager for this unit, and doesn't really have a history to go off of from previous years. I would drop once on a 3 inch and maybe twice on a 6 inch def twice on a 9 inch and so on. Any input from you guys is appreciated. I don't usually do seasonal rates but this property demands it.
