February's brutal snow storms have decimated Schuylkill Township's road budget for the year.
Supervisor Maureen Vanek announced last night that the township has spent $24,239.90 on snow removal and another $15,400.79 on snow emergencies, where the township had to hire outside contractors to help remove the snow, bringing the total to $39,638.82.
"The snow has just wiped us out," said Vanek. Originally, the supervisors had budgeted $20,000. At this point, the township will not have funds to do any road work this spring and summer unless the state provides additional funding.
