The first snow flake hasn't even fallen in the metro. Already, the City of Omaha is working to improve its snow removal service.

At Tuesday's City Council meeting, members approved the hiring of two local companies to oversee snow removal by contractors. City Engineer Todd Pfitzer says each company will get $45,000.

"This is really like what we do when we do a road construction project," said Pfitzer. "Essentially, we are hiring an outside inspector to go out and follow and check up on and verify that the private contractors are indeed doing the work they are billing us for."

City employees used to oversee the snow removal process. Now, they will be freed up to plow.
