Blizzards don't come cheap. The one that slammed the region this past weekend cost Attleboro at least $311,000, Mayor Kevin Dumas told the City Council Tuesday.
The preliminary total includes $122,000 in overtime pay to city employees and $186,000 for the use of private snowplow workers. The final total will be higher, as Dumas said the amount presented to the council was "specifically for the things that we know that can be categorized."
Dumas and city councilors said they hope the state will reimburse the city for the cost of the cleanup effort, or at least some of it. The request will be made, but Dumas said there is no guarantee it will be honored.
