Cole County reloads in the fight against winter weather

There’s no accumulating snow in the forecast for the near future…and that’s okay with Cole County public works director Larry Benz. Benz says they’ve ordered a couple of thousand tons of road salt for the dome south of Jefferson City. He says they should be set for the end of the season.

Benz says they've ordered and received a couple of thousand tons more of salt
