County approves funds for salt-brine facility

The Door County Highway Department will begin producing its own salt-brine mixture for use on area highways next winter.  The Door County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved the transfer of $170,000 from the Highway Department's Cash Account to the Building Account.  Those funds would be used to build an addition to the Sturgeon Bay garage to house the salt-brine manufacturing operations.  A $147,000 state grant will pay for the brine-making equipment.  Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej told supervisors that the new facility and the arrangement with the state make sense for Door County. 


The construction and installation of the salt-brine facility is expected to be finished by October, just in time for the 2021-2022 winter driving season.
