Cargill, Inc. has agreed to the exercise of the first option year, thereby extending the term of the contract for rock salt by one year for the period July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024, participating municipalities have the opportunity to review their annual rock salt usage and adjust, if necessary, its estimated tonnage requirements for this upcoming winter season. The terms of the contract allow the estimated requirements to be updated no later than the commencement of the new contract year. Accordingly, an assessment of those needs is to be made at this time and reported to the SHACOG office by completing the Estimated Requirements survey for the 2023-2024 winter season.
This Estimated Requirements survey is accessed through the SHACOG website at www.shacog.com. If you need assistance in accessing or completing the survey, please call Sue Dawson (412-429-1130) at the SHACOG office.
This survey is similar in form and scope to the standard estimated requirements survey. It is merely gathering pertinent data as well as establishing your estimated rock salt tonnage requirements for the forthcoming winter season. The intent to maintain your municipal commitment to the terms and conditions of the bid is again embodied in a declaration which is in electronic form and which must be agreed to for your estimated requirements information to be saved. As was the case with the original commitment prior to the bid, agreeing to the listed conditions binds your municipality, regardless of who completes the survey. In addition, please be reminded that minimum/maximum purchasing percentages for the upcoming winter season will be based on the estimate you provide in this survey.
Please note that even if there is no change in your needs, you must still complete and submit your information. Failure to respond will result in your tonnage and purchasing requirements remaining the same as submitted last year for the upcoming winter season. Participating communities must complete the survey and submit their information by Friday, June 23, 2023.
