Bradford approves salt, ice rink buys

BRADFORD—The Bradford Selectboard approved a couple of purchases to get the town ready for winter weather at its meeting on Oct. 22.
One is an annual item. The selectboard approved the purchase of winter road salt from American Rock Salt, the lone company that supplied a quote to the town.
Bradford Highway Chief Phil Page said the price was $76 per ton, or $10 less than last year. The price is based on a quote of up to 1,400 tons, but the town only pays for the salt that it orders, which are placed periodically throughout the winter.
Bradford used only 700 tons last year.
