PUBLIC WORKS UPDATE:
Over the next few days we will continue to monitor the weather, some cooler weather coming into the area will slow the melting somewhat, this will give everything a chance to drain a bit slower, and not overwhelm the drainage systems. Expect some puddles to form along the edges of the road where some ice may gather. For the most part, all ice and snow will be allowed to melt naturally, with some tweaking in areas where the melt water is likely to be problematic. Along with some localized water crossing to the other side of the road and the occasional frozen drain and culvert, the spring melting has gone as expected. Within a few weeks the remainder of the in-Town snow melt will be complete.

This week Public Works spent 3 days on pot hole repair. There’s a lot more to do, but most will need warmer and drier weather to allow the patch material to bind properly to the surrounding pavement. This will be an ongoing process and we should be able to get most filled by mid-April, depending on Mother Nature, of course. We were also out with the flush trucks opening up drains and culverts, this helps move the melt water through the system faster; still more to do, but we will have a second flush truck available again on Monday. Drain flushing and hydrant flushing will also be on the Spring maintenance plan.

If some sunshine and the warmer weather holds, expect to see the street sweepers out sometime next week! This week was just a bit too wet, and with ice in some of the gutters, it was more prudent to postpone it a week or 2 when we could sweep it with one pass of the machines. If you see the sweepers next mid-week, its to work some of the bugs out of the machines and get them ready to go. If the weather cooperates we may be able to start the sweeping program on next Thursday or Friday. Please be aware of any signs that indicate the streets and days of the sweeping. We will be keeping the public updated when and where signage will be posted.
Reminder*** we will be enforcing parking bans when the sweeping program starts***
