Breakdown:
One-time funding of $227k for two pieces of snow removal equipment ($127k) and construction of an equipment storage facility ($100k)
To man it, they're shifting some existing parks staff who clear library parking lots to do the trail stuff instead and adding the library parking lots to an existing plowing contract at a cost of $65,000 per year.

65k + 127k + 100k ~= 300k
