Winter storm blows through Chicago's finances

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The polar vortex blew a storm through Chicago's finances.

The city said since the first snow began on New Year's Eve, it has spent $11.2 million on snow plows and salting.

That includes more than $7 million worth of salt, $2.5 million on labor, including overtime, and $1.5 million to run equipment.

The storm exhausted half of the Streets and Sanitation's budget for all of 2014, and it's only January.
