WKYC received this statement from Morton Salt in regards to the municipalities that have not received the contracted amount of salt called for this week:

Within the last month, customer orders have surged due to the continued cold weather and snow events across the region. The high demand for salt can delay deliveries as we try to balance the needs of all our customers.

It is our intent to deliver on our customer commitments and we're exploring all options to replenish their salt supplies as quickly as possible, such as running extended hours of operation at our production sites and stockpiles to accelerate shipments to our customers.
