Snow Removal Update
Snow Removal Update for February 28-March 2: Our primary focus is currently on opening storm drains to facilitate drainage of ice pack in residential areas.
In addition, the grader is flat-blading ruts as required. Please watch for out for crews, so that they can operate safely to clear these areas.
Snow Removal Route Map
The snow removal route map for the current season is now available by clicking HERE. This map indicates the priorities for snow removal on community roadways. The red lines indicate the highest priority routes - main collector roads that are used by transit, and / or provide access to schools, Town facilities and downtown commercial amenities. The green and blue lines represent the minor collector roads and the residential through roads that are the next priority routes for snow removal.
The accompanying Snow Removal and Ice Control Policy that was recently adopted calls for less windrowing along most roadways in the community and increased removal of snow through blowing and hauling. For full details on the Snow Removal and Ice Control Policy please click HERE
