February 5, 2015  Effective today at 12:00 PM,  the DPW has placed heavy equipment teams in each of the Town’s seven villages. There are two teams in each village consisting of two front-end loaders, a backhoe and two Town trucks with plows and sand. These teams will visit each secondary road and open those roads back up to their normal lane widths. In other words, if a road is two lanes wide, the teams will open the road to two lanes wide. We have found that only this type of heavy equipment is effective at removing the quantities of frozen snow that is present on our secondary roads. The teams will continue work on the secondary roads on a 12 hours on and 12 hours off rotation until this task is complete. In the meantime we will continue work to clear Town sidewalks and treat the main roads with salt as it becomes necessary.
