Water and Sewer Gets OK to Purchase Road Salt

Township paid around $3,600 plus fees last year; salt costs per pound same. Salt used to keep township lots clear.

The Macomb Township Water and Sewer Department received approval to purchase road salt again this winter, even though it’s impossible to predict how much salt will be needed. 

The salt is used to clear the township’s municipal parking lots. 

Gerry Wangelin, Superintendent of the Water and Sewer Department, said the township will pay $56 per ton, plus various administrative fees. This cost is the same as last year. 

Last winter, the township ordered 64.5 tons.

Salt is ordered as needed, as there is no facility within the township for storage. The cost last year was roughly $3,600 plus fees. The township orders salt from the Macomb County Department of Roads.

"Last winter, the township ordered 64.5 tons." Hard to imagine using that much with last years mild winter! I think I had to shovel snow twice all year.
