MyFoxPhilly reports that a big snow is bearing down on Philly this weekend. Oddly, though, City Hall has no budget for snow removal. "The city of Philadelphia spent about $3.5 million cleaning up from the big December snowfall, which left the city with a budget hole of about $3.5 million. That's right: Mayor Michael Nutter's administration, like others before it, budgets zero for snow removal each year. "Because it's impossible to predict in the spring of one year what kind of snow you're going to get in the winter of the next year," (Mayor) Nutter said. This season, the Nutter administration will be forced to cover snow removal costs by going to City Council in early spring to find $6 million from other departments. "It's sort of a mid-year estimate, re-estimate of the budget that understands there are some things we didn't account for, or things that changed on us that we had no control over," Philadelphia Budget Director Steve Agostini said. "Snow falls into that category." But change is coming. When the mayor reveals his new budget for council on March 4, there will, for the first time, be money specifically set aside for snow removal."
