Warm Weather Leaves Lots Of Money For Snow Removal Budget

Snow Plows

BOSTON (CBS) – The lack of snow so far this winter is probably hurting private contractor plow drivers, but the state of Massachusetts is saving a lot of cash because of it.

As of early January 2011, the state had spent $22 million to clear the roads.

This winter, aside from the Halloween storm, costs have been minimal.

So far, according to The State House News Service, the state has spent about $10.5 million.

If the weather does change, Massachusetts has $50 million budgeted for winter snow removal.
