I wonder about the cost... in that time gas was cents a litre, now it is 1.42. Energy prices are much higher. David Hendsbee wants to do the district heating plant and use the heat to keep sidewalks clear, but I am not sure the cost/benefit ratio is there. How much is the capital cost, then how much is the cost to run it, vs just paying to plow? I think it would be cheaper to just increase the snow removal budget, but that is just a my gut, no figures at all.
