Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said people whose cars were towed by the county will be able to access the location of their vehicle Saturday morning.

Poloncarz says the list of vehicle make, model, license plate and location will go live on the county's website beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday.

The exact locations of the lots where the vehicles are were not disclosed by the county executive and won't be until the list goes live.

The county will pay for the towing costs, which is approximately $75,000.

Poloncarz says many vehicles sustained damage by plows and during towing, but that the county will not reimburse car owners for those costs.

The storm is estimated to have cost the county $2,000,000 as of Friday night.
