    i needs some help on pricing out this HOA bid for the sub-division i live across from. the sub consist of 5 streets that are .5miles long which comes out to 2.5 miles of road and an additional two streets that run .3 miles which comes to a total of 3.1 miles of actuall plowing and i know there will be two passes for sure and possibly three passes. i was wondering what would a sub-division like this go for on a seasonal contract, i provide service 2-10" unlimited plow all season any bill additionally for anything for 10" if there is anyone on here that can give me a rough idea of what i should charge i would really appreciate it, also thank you to anyone who helps with this. I just dont wanna give a price and i end up taking a loss. once again thank you if i measured correctly the approximate total of plowable area would be
    472, 500 i also estimated it will take 2tons of salt to salt the sub, any and all help would greatly be appreciated.

    Hourly rate x estimated service hours x estimated snowfalls = seasonal charge
