**NEW** Road Salt Cooperative Purchase
Northern Maine Development Commission (NMDC) is organizing its annual purchase of road salt as part of our Cooperative Purchasing Program. Our goal is to save participating municipalities as much money as possible in the winter road maintenance budget. We continue to use the Maine Department of Transportation's latest specifications for road salt. These specifications include that the vendor ensure low moisture content, anti-caking, and prompt delivery.
Please estimate your tonnages carefully. There is a clause that states municipalities are responsible to purchase a minimum of 75% of their estimated tonnages. We hold the vendor responsible to maintaining the price up to 125% of each municipality’s estimated tonnage.
If your community is interested in participating in the 2015-2016 Road Salt Cooperative Purchase, please return the attached form by June 15, 2015. Please feel free to contact me at 498-8736, (fax) 493-3108, or email email@example.com if you have any questions. We also welcome any suggestions on how the cooperative purchasing program could be improved.
