Our program includes a crew assigned to the daily upkeep of the streets and alleys of the town. They provide preventative maintenance which includes hot patch applications to the street surface from April 1st – November 1st and cold patch applications from November 1st-April 1st to restore the roadways due to the deterioration from the inclement weather conditions throughout the year.
An engineering firm surveys the conditions of the streets on an annual basis and determines which streets should be resurfaced. Along with the resurfacing, new curbs are placed on the street sides.
STREET SWEEPERS/CHIPPER TRUCKS
The chipper truck is dispatched in order to pick-up any brush along the curbside prior to the street
sweepers arrival on their designated route. Street sweeping is performed Monday-Thursday on all north and south bound streets and on Fridays on all east and west bound streets throughout the week in an effort to remove debris and stains on the curbside. Please adhere to the no parking signs on the designated street cleaning days. Violators are issued parking citations.
Our Public Works crew pride themselves on their prompt and thorough job performance during snow storms. After 2″ inches of snow has fallen, the town is divided into 2 sections, the north and the south, after which 6 trucks are dispatched, 3 on each side of town for the purpose of snow removal and to spread rock salt. In severe snow storms as many as 10 trucks are dispatched. The main thoroughfares are given top priority followed by all residential streets and public parking lots. Public Works is not responsible for clearing snow from state roads such as North, Grand, Belmont and Harlem Avenues, or county roads such as Thatcher Avenue.
All streets and public parking lots are striped on an annual basis. This program begins in June.
