A plow driver uses a broom to clear off his truck in Burlington.

Parts of Vermont saw as much as 18 inches of snow over the weekend. Big snow storms like this can pose a challenge for cities and towns with already strained budgets. We're talking about how municipalities work to keep roads safe and clear while facing challenges like high salt prices and aging equipment. 

We're joined by:

  • Jared Cadwell, selectboard chair for Fayston
  • Keith Gadapee, road foreman for Danville
  • Karen Horn, director of public policy and advocacy for the Vermont League of Cities and Towns
  • Carrie Johnson, town manager for St. Albans Town
