Assisting local communities in coping with the high price of winter road salt is the aim of new legislation introduced by State Sen. Pamela Althoff (R-Crystal Lake).
Senate Bill 49 creates a special reimbursement fund to assist northeast Illinois municipalities, townships and road districts which overpaid for their winter road salt. The legislation became necessary, Althoff says, when many local governments did not receive bids for their road salt from the state in a timely fashion, forcing them to pay higher prices.
