ROANOKE, VA --
The cost of the storm clean up seems to be piling up as quickly as the debris.
Roanoke City leaders are still calculating how much it has cost so far, but with crews working overtime, plus the cost of equipment and fuel, the finance office says it is adding up.
The city is relying on the contingency fund, money set aside for unexpected situations like this one, to help pay for these expenses.
The are also working with emergency management to track the money spent.
"We're documenting all the fuel costs, overtime, the extra rakes, pitchforks we need," said Skip Decker, manager of solid waste management.
The finance office hopes to have a better idea of the costs later this week.
