-        ‘Tis the season for winter weather! Here are some tips that can help to make a winter storm event easier on both yourself and on the Public Works crew:


Make sure your vehicle is ready for winter driving conditions.
Watch for black ice, especially on bridges and overpasses (always take caution when traveling these areas).
Reduce speed (even 4WD’s have difficulty stopping on ice).
Please remember to leave adequate distance (at least 200 feet) whenever following a piece of snow removal equipment. 
Please be patient.  The town has many miles of roadway to clear. Snow removal is a difficult and time-consuming job. Our Public Works Department always strives to accomplish this task in a safe and timely manner.

As always please keep an eye out on the website and/or Facebook page for updates on what is happening in Town!


Stay safe and healthy!
