Salt orders similar to last winter in Greensburg

Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

Greensburg has ordered 1,455 tons of rock salt so far this winter, up slightly from last winter, according to a report read during the city council meeting on Monday.

The city had requested 1,379 tons by early 2012, Greensburg officials said.

Road Superintendent Rick Hoyle said after the meeting that the salt dome on South Urania Avenue is near capacity — in excess of 700 tons.

City road crews began this winter with a full dome, Hoyle said.

In a related matter, council agreed to purchase salt through the COSTARS State Piggyback Program for next winter.

The city has participated for five years in COSTARS, a state program that seeks to obtain the best salt price by having several municipalities as members.

Council approved Gibson-Thomas Engineering serving as the city's consulting engineering firm for five years for the National Bridge Inspection Standards program.

The Latrobe-based firm was one of nine submitting information to city officials to serve as consultant, City Administrator Sue Trout said.

Inspections begin next month.

Council approved land development and site plans for Nabil Real Estate to have a bar and restaurant in the former South Side Grill at 9 Mt. Pleasant St.

The building has been vacant for about four months.
