Snow Removal

By  | 

Private contractors in parking lots, the truly dedicated in driveways and of course, city snow removal were out in full force today.

Because its the weekend, this is an overtime operation for Lansing snow crews, and Superintendent of Operation and Maintenance Jim Campfield admits it won't be cheap.

"The whole effort should cost us about $150,000," Campfield says.

It won't be skimped on either. About 25 of his trucks are running in teams. His crews are working 3 16-hour shifts

Still, he says, they won't start local roads until early Sunday. If drifting snow is a problem, they'll stay on major roads longer, and that may put an even longer delay on local road removal.
