Winter weather is rapidly approaching, and we would like to ask all Dover Township residents to help us keep our roads safe this winter. Please watch for our snowplow trucks, giving them the space they need to safely salt and clear our roads. We ask this for both your safety and theirs.
During the 2019-2020 winter weather season, Dover Township salted roads 11 times and plowed and salted roads 8 times, using a total of 660 tons of salt and salt-mixed materials. As we have 650 tons of salt and 400 tons of salt-mixed materials remaining from last season, we ordered 300 additional tons to be delivered throughout the 2020-2021 season. We purchased our salt this year at $69.63/ton. Last year salt prices were $84.50/ton.
