The roads in mountanous ares of the Rez that recieved several feet of snow, are closed for the winter. Where is this $33,000/day going besides in someones pocket. The council delagets will soon be sporting brand new gMC's. Order up more rings and alligator boots!

Does not surprise me that Aztec didn't spend too much, nor was there any overtime.
As long as you don't do side streets, you can save lots of money.
Do like Aztec, just hope for warmer weather to take care of the side streets!

I hate to, but I agree. Every year these storms cause a mess and cost the taxpayers a bundle, but, the NN govt does not see fit to try to improve roads or upgrade their processes to take care of the rural population. So when the snow gets deep everyone runs to help and up goes the costs. Chapters know who is most vulnerable to these storms, why cant they spend the summer getting ready??

Most people live in the Mountains want to be left alone not be bothered yet when the snow falls (every winter forever) they need help the rest of the time Leave me the hell alone mind your ownBusiness

What do you know---it snowed. It comes every year like it or not. We didn't make any one live so far off the roads that we need to get to. They live that far off as they like it. Can I have some one come to clean my driveway?? I'd like that too.Hay you know after the smow comes water and mud.You will be crying for more help then too. It's only tax money to HELP YOU OUT. go to the food bank to get some food when roads are dry to carry you over for 30 days or so.You don't need to go into town in the snow or mud.

Why is it? It's always just Az rez residents get more attention than New Mexico? A lot of tax dollars from New Mexico is also contributed to the NN money bucket which we never see.

There is a difference between snow and mud. Durango doesn't get much mud at this time. The NN does on most part of the dirt rez roads in AZ and NM. Besides Durango is just one small out of the nowhere community with 4 main (US HWYS) paved roads that come into it's miserable town. Rez communitys are spread throughout Northern AZ, Western NM, southern Utah and most do not have county or State paved roads running through them. Sure it can be paved but show me the money.
