As snow flies, officials keep eyes on plow budget
Nashua's Division of Public Works started the winter with a snow budget of $1.3 million. So far, the city has spent $552,000 to plow the city's roads, according to Carolyn O'Connor, finance manager for the DPW.
"No funds have been spent from the snow trust fund," said O'Connor in an email response to questions about the city's snow budget.
Last year's $1.2 million plowing budget was almost gone by early March after a February blizzard blanketed the city with nearly 2 feet of snow.
There was also $14,274 left of the $16,000 budgeted for sand.
In addition to those supplies, the city also uses about 2,500 gallons of fuel to keep the plows running.
