Item Title:


Purchase of Road Salt



Suggested Action:


I move that the Mayor and Council authorize the City Administrator to enter into an agreement with Morton Salt for an expenditure not to exceed $35,000, pending legal review.



Summary Background:

The City typically executes a rider on either a County or State contract for road salt. This year both County and State governments have delayed the issuing of their solicitations and awarding of contracts. It is expected that the contracts are to be awarded in mid-to-late December. Montgomery County is the entity that solicits this particular service for the members of the Washington Council of Governments and Morton Salt is one of the salt providers that will be awarded a contract for the area covering the Hyattsville portion of Prince George’s County. Once it is executed by the County, the City can then issue its rider contract, pending review by the City Attorney.


Next Steps:

Award contract and issue Purchase Order.
