Cash-strapped Detroit estimates it spent $1.24 million on snow removal and clean-up from the blizzard that swept across much of the Midwest two weeks ago.

The city said it spent $460,000 on labor, equipment, and material, including salt, and another $450,000 plowing residential streets. It spent $330,000 plowing and cleaning downtown over a 12-hour period after the storm, according to Mayor Dave Bing’s spokeswoman, Karen Dumas.
