Ottawa County Outsources Plowing


GRAND HAVEN — The Ottawa County Road Commission has contracted with Countryside Snowplowing to clear and salt some of its roads for this winter, the Grand Rapids Press reported. The company will provide services to roads in Sheldon, Olive and Park townships.

The road commission will pay the company $72 an hour which is $8 less than it would cost the road commission to do it, the Grand Rapids Press stated. As a result, the road commission will not have to hire additional employees.
