Bathurst awards road salt tender to Sussex company

City Hall

The City of Bathurst has decided to get its supply of road salt elsewhere.

On Monday council voted to award a tender for an estimated 3,000 metric tons per winter of road salt to Sussex-based Nutrium.

After speaking with its operators, the city determined the quality of last year's supply from Belledune wasn't to its satisfaction.

Though it costs a bit more to ship, the city says it's getting a much better product for a 'negligible' increase in price.
