The State of Ohio reached an $11.5 million settlement in its price-fixing lawsuit against road salt providers Cargill, Inc. and Morton Salt, Inc.

Under the terms of theandnbsp;settlement, public entities that purchased road salt from Cargill and/or Morton between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2011 may be entitled to receive compensation for overpayment because of artificially high prices.

In order to determine eligibility, local governments were asked to submit aandnbsp;claim form, found on the Ohio Attorney General’s website, beforeandnbsp;August 7, 2015. The form requires public entities to provide information concerning their purchase of rock salt for each of the 2008, 2009, and 2010 seasons as well as some identification information.
