Salt Auction

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the salt auction scheduled for April 22-24 has been moved to June 10-12. More information will be forthcoming.

This is a free service for members to save money on road salt and equipment. 

In a reverse auction, competing suppliers can submit more than one bid. With each new bid, the price is lowered, saving your county money on the purchase price. 



For more information, contact Scott Martin at or 800-264-5226.
