Not only that but most churchs have alot of $$$. They could most likely afford to be paying 5x that depending on the lot.

Yeah I agree...SOME churches have money. The one I belong to has maybe 50 members and maybe 20 that show each week. They dont see much.

Thanks for the input on the snow plow guys. I will run everything by them and see if they want to change there mind or not. Thanks again.....

That price is a steal in my opinion and should almost certainly guarantee that contractor a place either in heaven or debtors prison.

Do I understand you right that they are having you do it to save the $20, or did you volunteer without any coaxing on behalf of the church?

They asked the men if they got a plow would we do it. We said yes.

LOTS of trucks/salters out yesterday in the laning area. Just a heads up...if your truck weighs more than 5000 pounds empty you must have your company name on the side. Between that and all the expired plates yesterday... I was busy. The slow season must have slowed everyone from getting there plates renewed.

D & R, let me say thanks for all the information on the other threads. You are very informed and helpful. There is some talk on Plowsite of an ambitious Genessee county weighmaster pulling trucks over with too wide of plows, plows with wings, etc... Can you offer any insight as to specific laws regarding this? I have 2 8' Westerns with wings. I angle them on the road, but do I need to remove the wings to be legal? I know there are 10 footers floating around on f-600's and the like, how do they get by if it's "illegal"? Thanks for the help.

because MOST but not all churchs are. There is only lady in the area who stole over 2 million dollars from a church over the span of a few years, and it took them over 3 years to figure it out.

im sure they have alot of overhead, but if they bring in $40k a week for property that only costs a few million, thats alot of income vs. expense.

For a larger church, it'd have more people which equal more money, but also means more $ in expenses, same thing with smaller churchs.

some churchs have alot of money, some dont. It doesnt really matter either way, and i could careless, i was just stating that most churchs have alot of money and shouldnt be complaining over $20 compared to a 3k plow.
