Complete question from PNF member:
What is the basis for estimating that we need $50k of additional vehicles tires and parts vs 2020 ($375k total)?
[My summary of the answer given by Jeremy Marsette in 6/10 DPW subcommittee meeting.]
There are 2 reasons for this:
The new recycling contract requires additional mileage to dispose of recyclables.
The DPW is adopting safer practices, particularly given a blown out tire that occurred last year. They will no longer recap over a certain mileage or recap on front tires.
