    Watching the news I see this storm is supposed to cost New York City area $1 Million per inch, or now $20 Million.

    Is this true? If so I hope the $$$ will fall into the hands of our plowsite members!

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!! maybe some bright entrepernurial sole could make a proposal to Mayor Bloomberg about contracting it all out.

    ;) and I'm surprised the person I'm thinking of hasn't thought about it.... or maybe they have??????????????

    Anything is possible.....

    I bet they are subbing out a lot. Here in Rochester we are used to snow and our city subs out about $300 k worth of work each event. I was very surprised when I first found that out about Rochester because it seems like we have a million city owned plow trucks.

    Well i hope most of the money falls into the pockets of our members also. However, we all know this is never going to happen.

    NYC Dept of Sanitation handles most of the plowing here. I am not aware of any subcontracting they do. Dept of Transportation handles some too. The million per inch does not go to guys like us. Wish it did!!!
