BILL’S RANCH – Big powder days are normally celebrated around town, but residents of the sleepy Bill’s Ranch community near Frisco may not be so enthusiastic about the next big dump if it means they can’t make it home without hitching up a team of sled dogs. The prospect of having the entire neighborhood go unplowed due to a lack of funds collected from area residents is a real possibility, according to Charlotte Clarke, past president of the Bill’s Ranch Neighborhood Association.”Until we get our January bill from the plower, which is due any day, then we’ll know what’s going to happen,” Clarke said Tuesday. “We are probably going to have to quit plowing.”The problem is lack of funds to get the plowing done. Clarke arranges the snowplow contract for the neighborhood with local snow remover Jere Lord’s Snow Farmer operation, which charges around $600 per trip into Bill’s Ranch to clear the streets.In December – one of the snowiest months on record – the bill for plowing Bill’s Ranch was equal to the association’s total bill from last year. That left the association’s coffers nearly empty.
