The winter has been expensive for Lansford.
Since January, a total of $46,366.40 has been racked up in expenses, said Councilwoman Rose MaryCannon.
And this doesn't even include the wear and tear on one of the plows to the extent that it needs to be replaced.
In a report to council, Cannon said the costs since Jan. 1 are $1,013.62 in overtime wages, over $10,000 for salt and cinders, and $28,629 to Radocha Brothers for plowing and hauling snow.
She had no comparison figures on what winter maintenance cost in other years or how it will impact the budget.
