    Very few of the towns that I know of hire subs. The city of Rochester does, from what I've seen routes average 6-800/trip. They call you out. I know one spring there was a big article that they had saved 1 million $, they only called the contractors in once. We do work for one school district, plow only they salt. The county of monroe hires for both on some stuff. That rig is awesome BTW. You would probably be better off finding a contractor (s) that does areas with roadways, plow for a couple hours then start salting lots or getting into a large industrial park doing their roadways.

    Most of all NY has their own trucks. Cant think of any cities or towns that sub like MA.
