Blizzard cost Twin Lakes $30,000 for clean-up and overtime

Last week’s 20-plus inches of snowfall cost Twin Lakes about $30,000 in overtime for village staff and bringing in additional contractors to remove snow.

“I think we’re catching up,” Trustee Thomas Connolly said Monday night.

The village does intend to apply for disaster aid that could see the village reimbursed for 87.5 percent of snow removal cost for the 48 worst hours of the blizzard, said David Cox, village administrator.

Wednesday of last week saw village crews rack up 104 man hours in snow removal, Cox said.

“It was a difficult day to say the least,” Cox said.

The village was fortunate to not have any breakdowns in its equipment used for removing snow, Cox said.

Asked about the impact of the blizzard on the village’s snow removal budget, Cox was terse.

“It can’t snow anymore,” he said.
