What Is Job Costing?
For public works departments it means you are able to tell exactly how much you spent on pieces of equipment, projects, tasks and labor.
Do you know how much it cost to patch potholes last month? Do you know how many miles of street sweeping were performed and what it cost per mile? How about the labor cost on the key project last summer? And what about last winter’s snow removal costs – how far did you exceed your budget?
