Snow and ice. We don't know how much we'll get this season, but the town has set its fees for plowing and sanding/salting on private ways for the 2012-2013 winter season.
The Board of Selectmen unanimously approved the fees suggested by DPW Director Dan Nason.
Private ways scheduled for plowing and sanding/salting during the season include: Harris Ave., Green Street, Howard Street, Kimberly Lane and Maple Lane.
Fees were increased by 3 percent, or five dollars, from last year. This year, the fee will be $170 per storm per private way.
The Public Works Department requires alì private ways seeking snow removal services to receive sanding/salting services to ensure public safety of all motorists, including Fire, Police and Public Works Department personnel.
