Budget Busting Snow

The Friends of Louis I. Kahn Park pay a contractor to clear the snow from the sidewalks along the south and east sides of this city-owned park, and to clear a path across the middle of the park.

We do this because we know the city won’t or can’t do it, even though we can argue they should.  We budgeted $700 for snow removal for this season, which seemed reasonable given the experience of the last two years.  By March 1 we had spent over $2,500 on snow removal and expect that by the time the daffodils are blooming our snow removal charges will be about $3,000.

Please consider making a small, additional gift to the Friends of Louis I. Kahn Park this month to help offset our snow removal costs.  The Friends board is diligent about working within the budget.  Thirty-five percent of our budget this year comes from individual donations.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.  If you mark your special donation “snow removal” it will help us know how to direct it.
