While many local communities are struggling with their snow removal budgets this winter, Newton is still well within its budget at this point.

Newton has spent $4.3 million of its $5.8 million snow removal budget, Maureen Lemieux, Newton’s chief financial officer, told The Boston Globe.

Newton has increased its snow removal budget since 2010 when the budget was only $1 million.

“We have never spent more than $5 million in a winter. I have no idea where we’re going to land,” Lemieux told The Boston Globe.

Newton spend just under $4 million last week on snow removal. The city usually spends between $3 million and $5 million each year. 

Other nearby communities, meanwhile, have needed to dip into reserves in order to pay for snow removal this winter.
