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)?
Answer : [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.
