Still No Final Price Tag For Snow Removal

Mayor Nutter today said the city still doesn’t have a final tally for snow removal from the two storms that slammed the city last week.

“Snow fighting actually continues,” Nutter said this morning. “As soon as we have a final number, we’d be glad to get it to you.”

The cost of digging out after the December blizzard was $3.4 million, so it’s safe to guess that the ultimate price tag isn’t going to be pretty – especially in a tough budget year.
