Snow plows will only run if there are more than 3 inches of snow on the ground. The idea is to save money for jobs done during the spring and summer time.
"We`ll spend a lot of money on asphalt repair come spring time. That`s primarily where most of the money goes and any money that`s left over we retain in our cash reserves and we`re able to utilize them for purchase or replacement of vehicles," said Jeff Heintz with Bismarck Public Works.
Heintz says they usually have a cash reserve in case there is a lot of snowfall.
