The winter weather event that hit Branson February 22 through the 25 cost the City of Branson’s Public Works Department $29,684 in labor and material to clear.

Combined with the February 2 winter weather event, the City has spent $71,992 on the two winter weather events.

During the four days of the weather event, starting February 22, road crews used 61 tons of salt, 154 tons of rock chips, 200 gallons of beet juice, 800 gallons of salt brine, 498 gallons of unleaded fuel and 383 gallons of diesel fuel. Road crews drove a total of 4,695 miles, requiring a total of 532 man-hours.

When ice and snow are predicted, the City will call in 30 personnel from four different departments. These employees will work 24-hours a day, on rotating 12-hour shifts, on the City’s 13 different snow routes. Branson City crews clear and maintain approximately 250 lane-miles of roadway inside its boundaries. Every city-owned street will get cleared of snow.
