DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The mayor of Danville says the east-central Illinois city needs more money to pay for snow removal.

Mayor Scott Eisenhauer tells The News-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1dNMZB5) that city administrators need an additional $75,000 from the city’s general fund. He says the money will pay for overtime costs for snowplow drivers. Eisenhauer says whether that will be enough money depends on how much more snow and ice hit Danville the rest of the winter.

Bob Scott is the city’s service and operations manager. He has had to order more salt to replenish the city’s supply. He says the city had 1,200 tons available at the beginning of the winter. He says he recently ordered another 600 tons. He says he wants to make sure supplies are stocked if they are needed.
