A Good Investment

Old PlowsIn 1969, the Jackson County Road Commission purchased several new trucks, scrapers and plows to increase Jackson County’s snow and ice control fleet. The Commission added twelve new plows that year. With continued upkeep, the Jackson County Department of Transportation is still using those twelve plows today. Over the years, our crews have performed any required fabrication, sandblasting, and painting to protect against corrosion, and to preserve the integrity of the plows. A 1969 receipt lists the average plow cost approximately $2,000.  Today, the cost for a fixed, one way plow is $6,114.00. That is what we like to call a solid investment.
