Toledo hit with $3.9 bill for snow, ice control

Published:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- The cost of the snowiest winter on record continues to add up for Toledo as its city council reviews a $3.9 million bill for snow and ice control.

The city experienced more than 76 inches of snow during the 2013-2014 winter with labor costs for digging out from storms also at an all-time high.

The Blade newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1mesZN7 ) that Toledo City Council planned Tuesday to review the bill presented by the mayor's office.

The paper says the money would supplement the proposed 2014 budget and help pay for de-icing salt for next winter.

Dave Welch, Toledo's streets, bridges, and harbor commissioner, said Monday the city's stockpile of 75,000 tons of rock salt will be depleted by the end of March.
