ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- This was one of the snowiest seasons on record in central Minnesota.

The National Weather Service says St. Cloud has officially had 86.6 inches of snow, which is second only to the 87.9 inches of snow that fell in the 1964-1965 season.

Moving all of that snow is no small feat.

The St. Cloud Public Services Department says the city has used 58,000 gallons of fuel for snow removal, which cost $202,000.

It has taken 15,200 staff hours related to snow and ice management.  That compares to 9,900 staff hours last season.
