Dross also oversees a separate budget for road reconstruction, which has seen expenditures more than double in the last eight years. In 2005, the town's road reconstruction expenditures totaled roughly $306,000, while in 2012 Dross' totaled more than $780,000.
"No, I have no comment, no comment on the budget. We will be doing budgets in a month or two, but I don't have a lot to say," Dross said.
Herman said the town has faced a larger number of natural disasters in recent history, and that Dross has been very proactive in trying to mitigate any potential hazard areas.
He said the town does not typically put projects out to bid, relying on Dross to assign the work to himself or a subcontractor. "We haven't put out a project to bid in about three years," Herman said.
