GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - All the snowfall this week cost the City $8,000 to remove from the roads, but City officials say even though it put a bit of a dent in the budget, it's still on track.

Going into this storm, we had $70,000 dollars left on this year's snow removal budget.

The City went through quite a lot of salt and magnesium chloride, but is getting a new supply this week, just in time for our next storm.

City officials say crews plowed as much as they could, as fast as they could, including having crews work 24 hours straight to plow the seven blocks of downtown.
