Bear-resistant barrels

Print More

Regarding the April 2020 issue of The Granby Drummer, page 3, Minutes of the March 2, 2020 BOS meeting, I see that 54 bear-resistant trash barrels will cost $13,708. And each household that orders one will be charged $250. The town will also receive a rebate from MIRA for about $13,000. If the purchase price of the barrels is being refunded why are residents being charged $250? It seems the rebate pretty much covers the cost of the barrels.
