The city of Zanesville is one of many local governments seeking a share of Ohio’s big rock salt settlement case. Wednesday they will find out how much money they will get after Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine holds a news conference in Independence in the morning. Ohio submitted claims for a share of the settlement, which resolved an antitrust lawsuit accusing Cargill Incorporated and Morgan Salt Incorporated of colluding over past prices of rock salt. The Attorney General’s Office says 550 claims have been filed for part of the $11.5 million dollar settlement.
