Mayor Duke Bennett says that right now the city does have enough money set aside to pay for snow removal the rest of the year, as long as there are no other majors weather issues.

"We still have 2 1/2 months to go in the season, so it depends on what happens the rest of the year. We've got money, and there's an emergency money that we can go tap into to cover the cost of it, because were not going to cut back on anything. I'm just hopeful that it kind of evens itself out over the rest of the winter," said Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett (R).

Currently the city has 15 snow plows, and crews have been working around the clock in 12 hour shifts, to get roadways clean.
