DPW Does A Great Job ... Again!
Scenes Around Snowy Heights
As the alert for the first
blizzard of the season, the Department of Public Works was prepared with all plows and salt spreaders loaded by noon on Saturday, January 22,
That evening the pre-planning --
plow -- salt and snow removal -- went into action.
The town was set up into four
sections: two-truck teams with plows and spreaders covering the north, central and south
The roads on the hill from
Terrace to Rt. 17 were handled by front end loaders.
Smaller "mason's style"
dump trucks took care of boro property, cul de sacs and dead end streets.
The curb-to-curb plowing service
was accomplished in part by the no on-street parking from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. rule.
On Sunday morning after the snow
was plowed, salt was then applied to the roads as needed.
Snow removal began on Sunday evening with the
schools and churches being done first, followed by the sidewalks and curbs along the
Boulevard Business District. ######

spreaders on standby and (botttom) plenty of road salt ready in the shed. Trucks to the
right are used for snow removal.
