WINTER TAKES ITS TOLL

Nicollet County Highway Engineer, Seth Greenwood reported at today's board meeting that the county highway workers have not used 400 tons of our allotted 1100 tons of salt to help get our roads in a safe driving condition. Winter has not officially arrived, but salt use certainly has been necessary. The crews are trying to use it sparingly to help make it last through the season. Greenwood explained that salt is ordered early in the summer and they use their "best guess" as to the amount they will need. end
