Changes include:

  • Two, full-day Saturday trainings where all DPW drivers practiced hands-on driving and were tested on knowledge of their route and overall capabilities. 
  • Additional staff training for Department of Public Works (DPW) employees.
  • Major arteries or “A” routes will be salted 24-48 hours in advance of a storm and every side street salted up to 4 hours prior to the commencement of a storm.
