County's budget for snow removal is 87% spent

February 24, 1993

After last weekend's storm, Carroll County government has only 13 percent of its snow removal budget left, says Benton Watson, chief of the Bureau of Roads Operations.

The total budget for the current fiscal year is $540,360.

Mr. Watson said 112 county road crew members each worked 25 hours of overtime Sunday and Monday clearing roads after an eight-inch snowfall. The extra hours cost the county about $36,000, which depleted the overtime allocation.
