The city of Dover is jumping on board with the County to possibly save some money for salt bidding.
During Monday's meeting, council suspended and passed an ordinance that allows the city to participate in purchase contracts with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for various needs, including the purchase of salt.
Service Director Dave Douglas says the move is something even Tuscarawas County is taking part in.
Douglas notes that, in years past, the city has traditionally gone with the County for its bidding.
Douglas says the new approach could be a cost-saving move.
Douglas adds that the ordinance authorizing the move was left vague in nature to allow Dover to purchase other supplies through the State in the future.
The measure was passed by a six to zero vote with one councilor absent.
