Colorado Springs Snow Budget

The numbers aren't in yet on just how much money the city of Colorado Springs spent on snow removal. That's because for the city, the snow event isn't over.

The event begins before the first flake falls. When conditions are right, crews put down anti-icing material. Then, the snow falls, and crews remove the snow. After the snow is gone, they pick up the anti skid material off the streets.

As far as budgeting enough money, the Streets Division manager says, snow removal is a priority. Other street projects may have to wait.

The cost of a "snow event" can range from $11,000 - $900,000.
