Applying this approach, I <br />have prepared spreadsheets for both concrete and asphalt for all ten streets (attached). My estimate for the total <br />town budget for each paving option is: <br />Concrete Ten Streets = $16,429,867 (includes contingency, mgt & admin) <br />Asphalt Ten Streets = $14,111,323 <br />(includes contingency, mgt & admin) <br />You should expect the town engineer's updated estimates for all ten streets to be close to the above numbers. <br />In fairness to all the Almond Grove residents, please do not approve construction for any streets unless and until <br />you have dedicated sources of funds to complete the entire project. Either pave ALL TEN streets with the <br />material you choose; or pave NONE! <br />Best regards. <br />Tom Boyce <br />ATTACHMENTS <br />
