Fenton commits to buy 1,500 tons of road salt | News for Fenton, Linden, Holly MI | tctimes.com

The Fenton City Council unanimously approved the cost to purchase bulk road salt for next winter’s road maintenance operations from Detroit Salt Company.

City council approved the cost at its meeting Monday, April 11 at the recommendation of Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Dan Brisson, who explained the purchase in an April 6 memo.

Brisson said the DPW has worked with the Genesee County Road Commission (GCRC) purchasing office for the past three years to participate in its bulk road salt purchasing consortium. The purchasing office negotiated with Detroit Salt and the GCRC Board of Commissioners approved purchasing salt from Detroit Salt Company for the 2022-2023 season.

This year, the DPW committed to 1,500 tons for the season and pricing through the GCRC contract will be $69.90 per ton. This works out to be $104,850. Fenton will work directly with Detroit Salt to place the orders and invoicing will come directly from the Detroit Salt.

 Through the Genesee County purchasing consortium, salt cost $60.84 per ton ($91,260) for the 2020-2021 season and $62.66 per ton ($93,990) for the 2021-2022 season.
