Saint John Is Not Alone In Overspending During Winter

The Port City is in the same pickle as hundreds of other North American municipalities that likely overspent this year on clearing and removing snow.

Kevin Rice of Transportation and Environment Services tells CHSJ News they will be speaking to council in May about how much was spent on winter maintenance up to the end of March.

He says some budgets might be overspent and others would be underspent and the City as a whole will put the numbers together to determine where the offsets might be.

Rice remembers a winter a few years back where the City overspent by a million bucks and he expects this winter has been worse than that.
