June 3, 2015

In an effort to budget for this summer's paving project, Fox Township Supervisor and Roadmaster Randy Gradizzi said they have opted to cut out the 4-ft. widening of a road where catch basins were recently installed.
This move frees up funding in the township's road crew budget to accept the lowest paving bid of $214,943.75 from G.O. Hawbaker.
The township had budgeted $189,025 for paving, resulting in a difference of over $25,000 when compared to the lowest bid.
