    Figure salt usage ( 20 - 30 lbs/ 1000sf), time to walk salting area ( I assume you are salting walks only), add for markup on salt, and multiply by number of events per year. Michigan has average of 20 events per season. Discount for prepay and seasonal contract if you feel like it.

    Too funny when you bust yourself Mark, when you use the wrong user ID to reply! :nono:

    Who am I kidding, I know where he learned it from... :gunsfiring:
