snow-update

During snow events that occurred February 8 and 12, 2018, Public Works worked around the clock, in 12 hour shifts, to support the Village's objectives outlined in the Snow Plan.

The Department worked around the clock, in 12 hour shifts, to support the Village’s objectives outlined in the Snow Plan. Throughout the storm response, the department provided timely information to the public and maintained the roadways in a manner that exceeded the Village Board’s expectations given the volume of snow. The Village’s Facebook posts reached over 30,000 people and the Village received very positive feedback throughout the effort.

  • According to the snow totals from O’Hare weather station our area received approximately 18.3 inches of snow.
  • Village crews performed 8, 12 hour operational periods over 4-1/2 days which totaled about 1,472 man hours.
  • Village crews drove an estimated 10,210 miles during the last snow event while using 2,656 gallons of fuel. Roughly the distance to Melbourne, Australia.
  • The windrow operation along Main Street, St. Charles Road and Westmore removed 70 semi-truck loads of snow or about 840 cubic yards of snow in a 6 hour period

The estimated cost of the snow removal effort is:

  • Labor $71,232
  • Salt/Calcium $26,060
  • Fuel $6,131
  • Cont. trucking $6,000
  • Sidewalk cont. $4,800
  • Total $114,223.00
  • This equates to $6,241 per inch
