According to News 5, a water leak affecting the Cargill salt mine has also been a factor and Mortan Salt is having to pick up the slack in supplying the municipalities in Northeast Ohio. Last winter, the average cost was $55.00 per ton, but the average cost for the 2018-19 season has risen to $110.00 per ton; and we at B-Sharp Property Maintenance expect it to increase well beyond that.
