PORT CLINTON

Ottawa County Engineer David Brunkhorst is looking for alternatives to de-ice county roads after fielding a salt bid at almost double last year's price.

Brunkhorst said Morton Salt Co., the lone bidder, submitted a price of $73 per ton and limited the county and municipalities who bid with the county to 7,300 tons of salt this winter.
