Preparing for more than four snow emergencies — as is typical for St. Paul — may be one example. This year brought seven emergencies in seven weeks, and preliminary estimates put costs for the city somewhere in the vicinity of $3.5 million for those snow events alone. Actual costs are still being compiled, but they’ll land well above the $2 million to $2.4 million mark, which is usually the high end of the snow-removal budget.
