Governor Patrick cuts $4 Million from snow and ice budget for FY’09:

Governor Deval Parick, with the blessing of the Legislature has cut another $4 Million Dollars from an already under funded Mass Highway snow and ice budget.

Even Michael Widmer, President of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation has balked about both the cut in the fiscal year 2009 budget, as well as the grossly underfunded snow plowing program at Mass Highway.

Once again the Executive Branch, as well as the Legislative Branch have attempted to balance the state budget on the backs of hard working, mostly mom and pop size companies by making contractors routinely wait for there money some 3-4 months at a minimum.

Contractors are finaly standing up for themselves and standing down to Mass Highways’ ’08-’10 Snow and Ice Contract!!
