Berrien County Road Commission: Plenty Of Salt, Money Getting Tight

Another winter storm is set to bear down on Southwest Michigan this week, with the National Weather Service predicting snow could fall as much as one to two inches an hour at times Tuesday night. Berrien County Road Commission managing director Louis Csokasy says the never-ending pounding of winter weather is as stressful on them as it is on the rest of us driving around.


Csokasy tells WSJM News that comment is meant to be taken with a grain of salt, no pun intended, as they have enough of that to get through the next 60 days with no worries. As for money, though, he believes the road commission will have to dip into the reserves to handle the projects slated for this summer and to tackle the slew of potholes that are expected from this winter's deep freeze.


He's expecting a "pretty active" pothole season once the snow and ice melt away and believes at this point the road commission will have to dip into reserve funds to take care of those and summer projects. Csokasy says no projects that are slated for this year, however, will be delayed until 2015 or 2016.
