MILWAUKEE -- Snow has been kind of a nuisance this winter, but it's been relatively easy on Milwaukee's snow removal budget.

The Department of Public Works reports the agency has used 35,000 tons of road salt this season. That is little more than half the supply.

The current budget includes $7.8 million for snow removal and the DPW tells CBS 58 it's only spent $2.8 million.
