    We run Wayne's software on a lot of our larger jobs. Pleased with it. We've used it for probably 6 years.

    looks like 2 passes and a ****** . count how many tenants , multiply by $275.00 then multiply the average amount of events per season . then someone will smoke that number by about 5k and you've just written a coupon . welcome to the wonderful world of snow business .

    all kidding aside , get a signature on a seasonal by using the above formula.

    Hey Grandview, how many events and saltings are you figuring on that? Looks about 45-50,000sqft, thats around where we would come in on that size property salt included full seasonal no sidewalks.
