Who’s at fault? ASPHALT.
Gardner MA Finance Committee Confronts Asphalt at 4-13-22 Meeting
The Gardner MA Finance Committee met on Wednesday 4-13-22 and approved various recommendations to the City Council including $10,000 in additional funding for Downtown trash receptables due to price increases, the $75,000 annual amount to maintain the former dump, and $1.8 million in additional paving costs for various streets where water lines were recently replaced. Asphalt is now at a high of $83 per ton. Nationally it has ranged from just over $30 almost 20 years ago to about $70 in 2015, down to about $60 in 2016, and more recently about $65 per ton.
