Association Property Managers concerned about shortage of Salt and Icemelt

Association Property Managers plan as best a possible to maintain an adequate supply of snow removal supplies including ice melt, salt, and sand.

Your snow removal vendor is often the best source as they buy in large quantities and generally stockpile sufficient quantities to last the season.  With 11 snowstorms this winter, however, supplies are running out and even our vendor cannot locate more.  Try Home Depot, Lowe’s, or True Value Hardware?…forget it!  Here are a few recent newspaper articles describing the extent of the situation.  The Christian Science Monitor describes the situation in New England and the Bangor Daily News describes 40 tons of salt being held up by Federal shipping rules.
