Transportation needs cost $$$
PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board has reviewed and approved county transportation expenses for the coming year.
At Tuesday’s county board meeting, Transportation Committee spokesperson Dan Rabe presented the county highway department’s 2013 maintenance program, which will cost $694,400 in Motor Fuel Tax money. There was no board discussion on the 2013 program, which was approved unanimously by board members present.
On Wednesday, County Engineer John Gross said the 2013 program covers operation costs of labor within the department; materials, such as rock, salt and gravel; and equipment. That amount is about the same as designated last year from Motor Fuel Tax and is only a portion of the total operating costs for the department. Also, the $694,400 does not include any outside contract work, he said.
