LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Officials in Lawrence and Douglas County estimate it cost about $470,000 to clear streets and roads after last week’s winter storm that dumped more than a foot of snow in the area.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/1erbzUl ) Mark Thiel, the city’s assistant director of public works, says the city spent about $350,000 to clear streets and city parking lots. Keith Browning, the county’s director of public works, says the county spent about $120,000.

The storm that left about 14 inches of snow is one of the larger single-day snowfalls in the city’s history.

The snowfall also pushed the city’s total amount spent on snow removal this winter season to about $890,000. Since late November, city crews have responded to nine snow or ice events that have stretched over 11 days.
