Quincy Getting A Head Start on Salt Supply
(Quincy, IL) -- Even though it not close to winter, Quincy officials are planning to stock their salt supply this week. On Monday the City Council passed a resolution that allows the Department of Central Services to buy salt from an independent vendor in Batavia. The order will cost the city 342-thousand dollars. DCS Assistant Director Richie Reis says it's difficult to know how much salt the city will need this year, but he still urges his department to carefully monitor the supply.
