STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — As Mother Nature belts the Tri-State Area with snowstorm after snowstorm, some municipalities are draining their budgets to clean up the mess.
In Rockland County, Clarkstown Highway Superintendent Wayne Ballard told WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane the town has gone through 80 percent of a year’s supply of rock salt in two months. Many of this year’s events have included sleet and ice, which require pricier melting materials.
Ballard said in the worst winters, crews are out for 18 storms. The storm forecast to hit the area late Wednesday and Thursday would be the 17th.
