Montgomery Town Highway Department saved taxpayers over $600,000 in 2020

MONTGOMERY – The Town of Montgomery Highway Department has saved the town over $600,000 in 2020 by completing two major capital improvement projects in-house.

Highway Superintendent Shaun Meres said his department completed the Corbett Road box culvert replacement project and the Borden Road bridge replacement project saving the funds based on estimated costs that had been on file from the town engineer.

Meres’ team wound up completing the work for $98,000 and the state reimbursed the town under its Extreme Winter Recovery funding program.

Town Supervisor Brian Maher called Meres “an analytical thinker” with “creativity and ingenuity” to develop a town infrastructure plan that has the next 10 to 20 years in mind.
