Salt Levels Out, Low in Montgomery County Cities
MONTGOMERY COUNTY -- The Dayton salt barn has been non-stop this season. Looking back at video from the first snowfall on November 11, 2013, the salt pile has really diminished.
And at first glance, while it may still look like a lot, it is only good for about another two storms.
"In December, I placed my order to be delivered the First of January," explains Jim Brinegar who heads up Street Maintenance for the city, and the salt they ordered has only slowly trickled in.
The supply company has had a shortage, though it is unclear what has led to it, so Dayton's on a low sodium diet.
"When our salt supplies get this low, we have to really manage them and make sure our mains and highways stay open. We cannot afford to run out."
Affording this winter is another story. Dayton's salt budget is already at the max, so the money will have to come from somewhere else, and workers had about 40 overtime hours in their last paycheck.
"It's a lot out of the coffers and it takes a toll you know on you doing it day after day," Brinegar said.
Meanwhile in Trotwood, they completely ran out of salt, so they had to borrow some from the county until they get their new shipment. And for now, they are combining both sand and salt to get them through.
"You start reducing the optimal strength of it, so we don't want to do that unless we have to," said Dalton Hines, interim director of Public Works. He says Trotwood's predicament is short lived.
They have a different supplier from Dayton and the county, so they should get 750 tons this week, and Hines hopes it will last longer than the last pile.
"You deal with it the best you can. As you see your supply getting lower and lower you try to throttle back you try to be more strategic with it."
