Milwaukee may break the bank on snow removal

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's largest city might exceed its snow removal budget for the year by 25 percent.  

Milwaukee was planning to spend $7.9 million this year to remove snow and ice from city streets. As of 10 days ago, the price tag was $8.6 million -- which does not include the cost removing up to nine inches of snow last Sunday and Monday.  

Milwaukee officials expect the final cost for 2013 to be above $10 million, once all the invoices are paid and charges are posted to the city's books.  

There's a chance of snow showers on Sunday -- but otherwise, Milwaukee expects no more snow for the rest of this year.
