When Cuming County opens bids for gravel later this month, prices could be up a bit because of a possible local supply issue.
Tim Stalp, Stalp Gravel Company of West Point met with the County Board of Supervisors and township officials last Wednesday morning to talk about his company’s capability to supply gravel for the upcoming year.
Because of current Corp of Engineer’s regulations, Stalp said his company is prohibited from extracting the needed amount of material.
Stalp said he would consider hauling gravel in to meet demands until issues with the Corps can be worked out, but it’s unknown to local governments what the increased costs might be.
Stalp Gravel and S&S Willers of Pilger were awarded the county’s gravel bids last year.
The county is expected to open gravel bids at its February meeting.
