The Abington Public Works Department will be paving several roads as part of its proposed 2013 capital program. According to preliminary budget figures, the cost to pave these roads – about 3.6 miles – is a shade under $378,000.
Who determines which roads are de-potholed?
Abington Public Works Director Ed Micciolo said during last night's budget workshop that every road in the township is assessed and evaluated each year by himself and his crew. The worst roads are narrowed down to what the budget allows; he added that his department tries to pave roads in clusters to get the best "bang for the buck."
Board of Commissioners President Carol DiJoseph said jokingly that the board could spend all night arguing which roads are in most need of paving.
