    salt etc.

    Candidly, It is something that no one,
    I repeat no one, would give a second
    thought or look unless someone who
    was familiar with the facility, or worked
    there saw this happening; as salt goes in
    and does not get loaded back into a haul truck.

    It is winter and there are munipal trucks running
    all over with plows and sanding trucks and loaders
    loading sanders at all hours.

    There will be a lot of "HOW DO YOU ESPLAIN THIS LUCY!!!!!!!!!

    And I am sure a camera or two will be installed
    quickly with internet capability to the local
    cross bar hotel and other interested parties-IF they still have a job.

    stolen rock salt

    UH HUH, sure they would just like the price gouging
    and bid rigging has been noticed in the State of Ohio
    for the purchase of rock salt, for the previous 10 years;
    SURE, OF COURSE they would.

    You all need to down load the PDF file from the
    State of Ohio Inspector Generals office to better
    understand the salt business.

    A quick search shows NJ commercial guys getting their bulk as cheap as $42 per ton preseason. Something, is not on the table.

    I know there are a few questionable poeple that work at my local county garage that would work it on the inside. A couple hundo$ and the loader guy will load you like your supposed to be there.......nobody asks questions, I'm sure if I greased the loader guy he would load a semi for me and everyone would think it was going to a township or something

    Driver just rolled in and rolled out...slip the loader operator some $$ and scale ticket and see ya!!

    That's the most logical. Some higher up stopped by and did some sort of audit, and lone behold they must have had it stolen

    I bet there's more to this than we are seeing......a super that sold it off somewhere else, poor accounting/tracking methods (I've never seen a scale at a municipal yard yet!!), employees using more than they were supposed to, it all adds up. We'll never hear what really happened. Maybe it got rained on and dissolved!! :p
