At least they have come from, oh wait until it melts or let's put in the middle of the intersections like they did when I moved here. Chuck, all other staff heads invovled, you and your guys did a great job. Still I would like my neighborhood not to be the last plowed every time :).

And what did they do with the excess? They have done a great job this year.

Although this headline is technically correct, it is sensationalized considering we had little to no snow last year. So of course it's tripled over last year. Chad, your story is incomplete...the more relevant headline and statistic would have related to the actual city budget for snow removal. What is that?

They are more than welcome to put the hauled off snow in my yard/garden, instead of their storage lot! Could certainly use it! :D

Tax dollars well spent. Job well done!

What did the city have as a budget? Is this over the budgeted amount or under it, being as we have had two years (in the last 4) a lot worse than this year you would think it was under budget? This is after all an average snow fall for winter.

We had no snow last year....um - what did they spend money on last year??? Maybe pre-treating the roads?

what is 3 times zero? We had 1 significant snowfall last year that lasted 1/2 a day.

More than triple from a year when we had a negligible amount of snow? You don't say.

Thanks for keeping an eye on the city's finances. Good to have someone reporting things like this for government transparency. Despite my fiscal conservatism tirade by the city as of late, I think this is money well spent..
