|The Village of Hamilton's Salt Building - Similar to what will be built in DeRuyter
The Town of DeRuyter
is moving forward with plans to construct a sand and salt storage building on the site of the former highway garage at 811
Utica Street. The 70 year-old former garage has served the town well, however, its useful life has passed and is no-longer
suitable to meet the needs of a modern highway department. The new facility will be a 40' x 96' structure with a 20' x 70'
cold-storage lean-to attached to its south side and will have a capacity to store 1,500 tons of sand and salt. The Town awarded
the low-bid for construction of this facility to Secor Building Solutions at a cost of $143,750.00. Additional work for site
preparation and electrical needs are projected to cost up to $27,500.00. The old garage demolition, including asbestos abatement, is
projected to cost $45,000.00 bringing the total project budget in at $216,250.00. The Town Board has approved, subject
to permissive referendum, the issuance of $200,000.00 in bonds and will use building reserves to cover the balance of the
The project will begin with the abatement of
the old garage in July and the total demolition being complete by the end of August. The construction of the new facility
will be complete by October 30.
who have recently completed similar projects estimate that they have saved up to 33% of their material usage. We
currently mix salt in with the sand pile to prevent freezing and for more-effective snow and ice removal from the
roadways. With the sand pile outside in the elements, the rain will wash some of the salt from the sand - this salt
loss costs the town money every year. Wet sand, beyond being heavier than dry sand, is less-effective in the treatment
of snow and ice from the roads creating the need to use more product to achieve the expected results. The Town expects
to use less sand and salt due to this new facility which will save the taxpayers and be better for the envionment.
Anyone with questions or concerns regarding this
project, or any other issue, is encouraged to contact the Town Supervisor at 367-1355.
