The Public Works Department is responsible for the upkeep and constant repair to all Town owned property, provide a 24-hour, 7 days a weeks on-call service, and continue to work on scheduled projects throughout the year. Typical duties include snow removal, spring clean up, maintaining and burial preparations for Fairview Cemetery, as well as grounds maintenance at the new school and sports fields.
The Public Works Department is made up of four full-time personnel. They all are working very hard to complete a series of many workshops and seminars required to achieve the Road Scholar Degree. Advanced Welding, Work Zone Traffic Control, Basic Paving Contracts and Inspection Techniques, Electrical Safety, Snow and Ice Control, are just a few of the many required programs.
For several years the Public Works Department has strived to become as self-sufficient as possible, thus making it possible to better serve the community.
Much of the equipment used daily was designed and manufactured "in house" by department members, i.e. pavement rollers, screens for winter sand, sidewalk sander, utility trailers, just to name a few.
The staff of the Public Works Department take great pride in their department, services they provide, as well as in completed projects.
