this isn't the first time whitehall screwed up their streets. Cementon roads were a mess for months while the public works crew slowly completed a job that a real paving company would have finised in a week.

add up the cost of the labor for Whitehall workers dragging out a project and then see if it really is a savings to not have the job done by professionals

2nd street in Cementon going towards Coplay was a disaster which Whitehall caused due to their lack of knowledge of rebar. then the road had to be repaired the following year by a real crew.

I guess they failed to mention that most asphalt producing companies in July put a hold on all State funded asphalt due to the jump in liquid aspahalt from from $640 a ton to ~$840 a ton overnight. The budgets for these projects just can not adjust to 75% increase in price. Asphalt it self jumped from around $62 a ton to around $80 a ton. Most of these budgets that townships get is from the state funded liquid fuels.
