Public Works

The public works department is located at 280 Victory Highway behind the Town Hall. The highway crew consists of 6 full time employees who are responsible for the maintenance of approximately 90 miles of town roads. Besides paving, plowing, sweeping and cutting back the brush along the roads, the highway employees also maintain roadside drainage, catch basins, retention ponds and the installation of dry hydrants. All public works vehicles are maintained by the employees. Two employees have completed the 40 hour OSHA certification program. Safety classes are updated every year through Beacon Insurance. In conjunction with D.E.M., public works also administers the mosquito abatement program.

Highway Supervisor, Claude Wright, can be reached at (401) 397-6110.
