Antrim exceeds budget on snow removal
GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Antrim Township will pave only five roads in 2010 because heavy snowfall this past winter forced the road crews to exceed the budgeted amount by 223 percent, officials said.
Township Administrator Brad Graham told township supervisors Tuesday evening that Antrim has spent $65,799 on road maintenance, snow removal and ice removal.
Two major storms kept crews working on the roads for days this winter.
The 2010 budget allotted $29,500 for maintenance, snow removal and ice removal, Graham said.
To offset the additional cost incurred for removing snow, Graham said the township will pave one less road in 2010.
