I watched in December and early January as the town plowed and salted every little back road, any time there was a hint of a snow flake.

By mid January when I think they realized we were going to have a snowy year they scaled back to a more reasonable plowing routine.

Now we're in a panic because they blew their budget too early in the year?

This seems to happen every snowy year. What's is it? Do the plow operators want to get their overtime in early in case it's not a snowy year? Is the town afraid if they don't use all their budget, they won't get as much next year ... so they spend it as early in the season as they can, just in case?

There seems to be a pattern here.

It's no wonder our country is in such a financial mess.

wondering has some good points. Except the DPW doesn't have to worry about thier budget now that selectman Mcnabb is gone. Pete will be able to bully whoevers left into giving him whatever he wants. what a shame.
