Atlanta Still Snowed under over Cost of Storm Recovery
(AJC) — Atlanta may no longer look like Siberia these days, but the impact of last month’s monster snow storm is still chilling. The city spent $4.7 million on snow removal and costs related to the storm that crippled much of the city, according to documents released to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Of that sum, the city spent $3.4 million for hiring 10 outside contractors to provide snow removal, attempting to relieve a city that is without its own fleet of heavy storm equipment. At least two of those companies, Cascade Building and CTC, earned more than $1 million for their services.
