To communicate urgent notices and alerts, we generally use the News banner on the Town website, contact the Inquirer & Mirror to blast out an “Inky Alert,” provide interviews and announcements on WACK FM radio (97.7 FM) and/or utilize Channel 18 or Geno 99.
Cold patch is also very expensive. It costs approximately $200/ton and it also has constraints: 1) it requires special handling, 2) needs to be kept covered, 3) it must be stored under cover to retain its adhesive properties, and 4) it tends to leak oils at certain temperatures. As a result, the Town does not “just cold patch everything" but rather applies this solution where and when appropriate.
