Private companies are not lining up for the job of removing snow from Chicago's side-streets this winter.The city is asking for bids from contractors.

Plote Construction submitted the only bid to perform the service. The company is offering a flat rate of $2.9 million per-month from November 15th to April 15th.

Aldermen who oppose the idea of privatizing snow removal say the lack of bids is one reason the idea should be scrapped.
