COSTS OF SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL

County Highway Engineer Seth Greenwood presented his annual report for the Nicollet County Highway Department. Even though we want to forget winter and all of the stuff that goes with it, it is of interest to note that for the calendar year of 2008, the county spent $468,001.89 on snow and ice removal.

Since the state of Minnesota, the legislature, and mostly the Governor want to see budget decreases in the future, this is one area that the county board could choose to decrease. Will our citizens be willing to accept no snow and ice removal on the weekends? end
