Salt Relief for Millcreek Township

Posted: Updated:

As we deal with yet another winter storm, many municipalities in our area are dealing with a salt shortage.

But in Millcreek, supervisors are breathing a sigh of relief.

Since last week, the township has received an additional 175 tons of salt and 200 tons of anti-skid which will help them through any upcoming storms.

According to Millcreek Township Supervisor Brian McGrath, the township goes through 6,000 tons of salt a year and they've already exceeded that number this winter.  McGrath said that just last week, the township only had enough salt left to last through two more storms.

"It left us in somewhat of a tenuous situation," said McGrath.  "As it turned out, it was just kind of a lack of communication between the supplier and the companies that are doing the trucking for the supplier, as to who is delivering and when.  So, unfortunately we were caught in the middle.  That seems to have been resolved and we are in pretty good shape."

The township is also waiting on an additional order of salt.
