Our operations crew will be out this week conducting snow lifts in urbans areas where an abundance of snow has accumulated. Early in the week, watch for crews in south Keswick as well as on High Street in Sutton.

There may be some traffic interruptions and we thank you for your patience. Snow lift operations are a key part of the Town’s effort to keep the streets clear and passable for residents and emergency vehicles. This also helps with drainage by keeping catch basins clear.

The Town’s winter maintenance event will be lifted at 2 p.m. today.  As snow removal efforts continue, please refrain from parking on the road when possible. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
