The long awaited salt barn has been completed and ready for use by the Suffield Township Road Department. The barn is designed to hold approximately 1,000 tons of salt, which, of course, is a lot more than the township typically uses in one year. But now the township will be able to buy and store salt when the salt offered at reduced prices. Salt for this year sold at about $67.00 per ton. In the past the price sometimes soared to over $100.00 per ton. Still left to be done is graveling the outside yard, filling some dirt around the west and north sides and planting some shrubs and other plants to hide most of the structure from public view. Trustee Jeff Eldreth spearheaded getting the project started through it's completion. Currently the township's salt supply is stored in the Road Department building, which is directly across State Route 43 from the new structure. Some salt for this year's use has already been purchased, delivered stored in a pile to the west of the Road Department garage.
