Alburtis Borough Council passed a motion March 13 denying a request from PennDOT to plow their roads in the borough.
The contract includes more than plowing roads, said Councilman David Lehr of the highway committee. Plowing PennDOT roads would take away from the time it takes to plow the borough's roads; they have only so much equipment and they need to concentrate on borough roads. Also the borough would have to carry the liability and the price of salt would increase because more salt would be needed.
The highway committee recommended not taking the contract.
