Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The longer winter drags on, the more it costs area cities.

This year, Fargo has already used 72 percent of its annual snow removal budget. Moorhead has spent over $70,000, which is about 60 percent of its budget.

Chad Martin, Moorhead Public Works: "Last couple of years have actually been pretty easy. Which has been good also, but this year's kind of back to that wakeup call and it's tougher on the staff."

For some perspective, Moorhead only spent about 15 thousand to clean up the streets last year.
