Greenburgh Supervisor Feiner Weighs In On The Costs Of Snow Removal

Photo Credit: File

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Town Supervisor Paul Feiner shares information on how much Greenburgh has spent on snow removal and precautionary measures that will take place if the town exceeds its budget.

It’s been a difficult winter so far. According to Victor Carosi, commissioner of Public Works the town has already spent $143,054.23 on overtime in 2015  (not counting the last snowstorm) addressing snow related issues.  And, we have  committed nearly all of the budgeted money ($630,000) for salt purchases.  We have adequate salt on hand and a backlog of deliveries still pending. We do not expect any problem with salt budget.

Don’t worry. If it keeps on snowing at the rate it has been snowing and we exceed our $250,000 overtime budget – we will go into contingency. We can always authorize a budget transfer. We will never jeopardize your safety and will never cut back on snow removal operations due to budget issues.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our hard working Public Works, Police and Parks department  for working long hours during days, nights, weekends helping to keep our roads safe. It’s not fun being called on night after night – in frigid temperatures addressing snow-related issues. Each of our employees who are assigned to snow related duties deserves our thanks.
