Easy winter leaves more green in budget

MONROE - Thanks to mild weather during the 2015-16 winter, Green County saved 35 percent of its plowing budget, leaving funds to spare should harsher weather reappear in the future. Highway Commissioner Jeff Wunschel said less snow translated to less time for plow drivers to be on the road and less salt being used throughout the season. In all, the county saved $292,000 out of its budgeted $842,000 to keep the 278 miles of county highways cleared over the winter.
