Gravel Crushing

13,865 tons of gravel is how much the town uses per year for its highway and water department needs.
Purchasing gravel would cost over $14.00 per ton so the Town saves up all the rock and extra materials excavated over the course of the year on other jobs and hires a rock crusher to come and make our own gravel for a cost of just $4.76 per ton.
The crushing operation is impressive, this year using Hunter Excavating as the vendor. It takes a couple of weeks and some serious equipment — and the cost savings to taxpayers is substantial. Work finished last week so we are again well supplied with gravel for our future work.
