Highway, Public Grounds, and Water Distribution Divisions
The highway, public grounds, and water distribution divisions are engaged in snow and ice control efforts today. This effort is expected to continue throughout the day, overnight, and well into Wednesday.
Water Treatment Division
The water treatment division will be performing normal daily operations of the Pond Street, Beal, and Broadway water treatment plants as well as snow and ice control at all water facilities.
Snow and Ice Advisory
Road conditions are expected to deteriorate rapidly today. We urge you to stay off of the road. If you must drive, please plan ahead, give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination, drive slowly and leave plenty of room between you and other drivers as visibility will be poor. On street parking is prohibited. For those who use a plow to clear their driveway, we ask you not to plow snow into the roadway. Due to the expected volume of snow, we regret that we can not assist anyone in removing snow from the end of your driveways. Residents should expect plows to continuously plow streets though late in the day on Wednesday.
Brush Pile Hours
Please note that we have posted extended hours for the Ames Way brush pile to allow residents greater opportunity to deliver their brush. The weekend hours will be Saturdays 8:00 am to noon and Sundays noon to 4:00 pm. The weekday hours are 7:30 am to 2:30 pm. The brush pile is closed on legal holidays and during snow and ice operations. Please note that the town will only pick up brush that has fallen into the street. Residents are advised not to pile brush that has fallen in their yards out at the street as we will not be doing a general town wide pickup. In addition, the brush pile is open to residents only. Landscapers are not allowed to use the pile.
The goal of this page is to inform interested parties of the planned daily activities of the DPW. The information on this page reflects the planned work at the start of the business day as reported by the foremen of each division. The activities of each division are subject to change depending on conditions that may occur as the day progresses. Our intention is to update this page daily and to build upon it to include reports of activities completed over the past few days and weeks. We invite the public's comments and suggestions.
