While there is a lot of pressure around our town to have a "White Christmas" for every day we don't have snow and ice and every day the city doesn't have to send out the Street Department in the wee hours to clear the streets, we may be saving enough money to maybe pave a few feet of city streets.
Do we need the paving? Just drive around town and your car will tell you loud and clear. Do we have the money for the paving now? Nope according to pretty much everyone at City Hall. Will another light Winter save us enough money for any actual paving? Probably not. It's kind of like when I was a kid and had nearly an extra dollar from my paper route. Didn't save it for anything. Spent it on a Suzy Q. It won't be a Suzy Q the city spends the extra money on (Hostess is gone you know), but I bet it won't be spent on paving.
