Kent County will be forced to pay a huge premium for road salt this winter.  Last year the going price was 44 dollars a ton.  This year it’s 66 dollars a ton.  That would add something close to three quarters of a million dollars to this years over all bill.  Like always, more snow removal costs simply come out of next years road repair budget.  And looking forward to next spring, asphalt  say their prices will be going up too.
