At the first sign of icy streets, the Fleet Division is ready to deploy. As with any snow season, some days will be much worse than others, but the first events afford new crew members the time to learn new routes and equipment functions. Less experienced operators are matched with seasoned snow removal staff for on-the-job shadowing. The same team that clears the snow also provides meter reading, sign and signal repairs, and water and sewer maintenance during the rest of the year. After storm events, the crews must also clean, inspect, and repair equipment. Think that sounds pretty cool? The Public Works Department invites residents to be matched with a snow crew team member for a 'Ride-Along'!
