Waterbury’s Mayor Offers Minimum Wage For Shovel Help

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) _ Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary is trying to recruit local teenagers and adults to help shovel out the city’s schools.

O’Leary told the Republican-American of Waterbury  the city is inviting anyone interested in helping with the continuing snow removal effort to come to City Hall at noon Tuesday. He says the city will pay minimum wage to people of all ages, but he’s hoping to get a lot of students ages 14 and older who don’t have school and have nothing to do.

Waterbury schools remained closed Tuesday because of all the snow dumped by the blizzard on Friday and Saturday.

O’Leary says money to pay the extra help will come from the city’s snow removal fund, which he expects to be reimbursed with federal emergency disaster aid.
