Snow Days Are Fun! Let's Keep Our Kids Safe
As we approach the winter season we would like to make aware that nothing is more tragic than a child being hit by a snowplow!  Snow tunnels in road side snow banks will be destroyed by the Highway workers!  They are extremely dangerous, as plow drivers cannot see children playing inside them.  Please warn children of the dangers of building them near roadways. Kids of all ages love snow! We want everyone to have a fun, but safe winter season.
 
Please remember that cars should not be parked on any Town road during a Winter Storm.  Parked vehicles obstruct snow plowing operations and the vehicles may be damaged by the plows.
 

Mailboxes Damaged During Snow Removal
During and after significant snow storms, the Highway Department, in the course of plowing, receives phone calls regarding damage to mailboxes, either from snow plows directly or from the force of snow being thrown by the plows. If such damage is indeed caused by snow removal, It is not done intentionally but is an unfortunate consequence of snow removal.

As far as the Highway Department replacing damaged mailboxes, it must be pointed out that there is no statutory or legal authority which grants a property owner or resident along a public highway any right to place a mailbox in a highway right-of-way. That the mailbox is on town, county or state right-of-way is a courtesy to the postal service. Thus, when the necessity of keeping highways open, conflicts with the individuals reception of the mail, the latter must stand aside. The owner might even be compelled to remove the box under Highway Law #319.

From past experience, we have found that plastic mail boxes do not withstand the abuse of snow from the plows hitting them and are not recommended. Please check your mailbox for possible repairs. If your mailbox is damaged because of a rotten post or rusted box, the town will not repair it. As a courtesy, the Highway Department will place a temporary box so that a resident can receive mail if their box is damaged by the plow, but we will not replace any fancy mailbox or box. Mailbox posts with fancy supports are not recommended as they stick down under the box and give the wing plow something to get hold of. A standard metal mailbox mounted directly on top of a treated 4x4 post placed 41"-45" high to the bottom of the mailbox is the most cost effective and best solution to maintaining your mailbox during the winter seasons.  If your mailbox is knocked down during the winter season we recommend the temporary use of a 4x4 wooden post and a metal mailbox cemented into a 5 gallon bucket.  This will allow movement of the mailbox out of the town right of way during inclement weather.

There is hereby declared to exist in the Town an emergency by reason of a heavy snowstorm whenever snow falls during any period of 24 hours or less to a depth of 2-1/2 inches or more, in that such storm constitutes a serious public hazard impairing transportation, the movement of food and fuel supplies, medical care, fire, health and police protection and other vital facilities of the Town.  Such an emergency is declared to continue for a period of 24 hours or until such earlier time as snowplowing operations have been declared completed by the Highway Superintendent.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q:  I have a dead tree in my yard.  Who is responsible for cutting and hauling it?
A:  The Highway Department is responsible if it is the town right-of-way (within 25 feet from the center of the road).  Otherwise, you are responsible for the tree.  We do not remove trees unless they are a hazard to the roadway.  We also do not remove trees that have grown into utility wires. You will need to contact your utility company first.

Q: Who is responsible for the removal of dead animals? 
A:  The Highway Department will remove the dead animal if it is in/within a Town maintained road. Dead animals on State or County Roads should be referred to the appropriate agency.

Q:  When are you going to plow my road? 
A:  We have 78 miles of road to salt and plow.  Our plow routes take approximately 3.5 – 4 hours to complete.  Your road will be addressed sometime during each plow run.

Q:  Who fixes potholes and road damage? 
A: The Highway Department is responsible as long as it is a Town maintained road.  Any State or County Road should be referred to the appropriate agency.

 

Children enjoying Touch-a-TruckTouch-a-Truck!
The entire Highway Department would like to express their sincere thanks to all of you who stopped to visit us at the Fall Harvest Festival.  We introduced Touch-A-Truck for the first time in 2012 and enjoyed our visits by both Little and Big Kids.  This year we had the pleasure of meeting more of our little wonders as well as those who returned, another year older and even more intrigued.

Knowledge is a wonderful gift and we want to provide the opportunity for kids of all ages to learn that their passion for TRUCKS doesn't have to stop at High School.  Whether repairing or operating equipment it's a great privilege knowing that you are working within your own community and making  a difference.  This is the next generation of Machine Operators. Why not let them know how rewarding being a Machine Operator can be!
