The 2012-2013 bid was awarded to Morton Salt at $65.17 per ton. This year Morton bid a net delivered price of $63.80 per ton.
Other bids were from Cargill Salt in North Olmstead, Ohio, at $69.63 per ton and North American Salt at $64.37 per ton.
Commissioners ordered the bids be taken under advisement and reviewed by County Highway Superintendent Jeff Brill. Brill is to bring a recommendation to the commissioners at the July 1 meeting.
