Recent snowfall draining LI removal budgets

With snow continuing to pile up this winter, some Long Island officials say the snow removal budget is dwindling.

According to Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy, Suffolk's snow removal budget is down to about $300,000 from the $2.7 million originally allotted. Levy says some of the 2010 budget was used to plow and salt roads after the December blizzard, which dumped up to 27 inches.

Town and village officials across the Island say their budgets are in good shape, despite the recent snowfall. A spokesperson for Nassau County says the county still has about $1 million left.
