Highway Department Down One Truck

The Highway Department would like you to know that the one-ton truck has been deemed unsafe for use and unrepairable by an outside repair shop. The frame is cracked in two places due to regular wear and tear. The vehicle is 12 years old and is scheduled for replacement by warrant article on March 14th. The Town has contracted plow services through Mick Construction until a new vehicle can be purchased. Plowing of streets may be delayed as a result. Your patience during this difficult time is appreciated. Thank you.
