      Thank you for the comment as well as following the Blog Chris. The folks at Kalamazoo County Road Commission are outstanding at working to improve service while reducing cost. In these tough economic times, that can be a real challenge. I am also very pleased that Great Lakes Chloride, Inc. was able to help with the salt reduction cost savings by providing the Calcium Chloride w/BOOST*.

      Keep an eye out next season. The Road Commission and MDOT are looking at Direct Liquid Application, (DLA). This will be a pilot program to evaluate using liquids only for anti-icing and de-icing. More details as we start the 2012-13 winter season. This should be another cost reduction / service level improvement.

      Again, hats off to the hard working, innovative and cost sensitive staff at Kalamazoo County Road Commission.
