Lack of transparency on cost of Marshall Fire debris removal frustrating agencies in charge, raising questions

CBS4: The town of Superior’s trustees are wondering why Boulder County won’t tell them how much each part of the Marshall Fire debris removal process is going to cost, as victims of the Marshall Fire struggle to move forward. Neal Shah, a town trustee, has been trying to get the information and says it’s needed for audits.

“We need to make sure we are being charged the right amount to the agreement and if we are being overcharged it is coming right out of the pockets of our residents,” said Shah.

He says they need to know how much the heavy equipment, shovels and overtime will cost. The work has now moved from 6 to 7 days a week. Superior believes it’s on the hook for $1 million to $2 million.
