It seems Belleville is making its way through this winter well under budget for snow removal, despite this recent snow storm.
Belleville has a $2 million budget for snow removal in 2017.
Manager of transportation Pat McNulty says it’s been “a light winter, touch wood” but this week’s storm was difficult.
He says the crews worked two shifts around the clock from 4 a.m. Tuesday.
McNulty says the usage of sand and salt this winter has been about the same as if there had been lots of snow.
The city spent $1.27 million on snow removal in 2016, of a $2 million budget.
