A message from the DPW

Town of Greenfield
March 20th Snow Event
The DPW is currently assessing gravel road conditions throughout the town. We understand that the morning commute was difficult, however we are not able to plow at these temperatures.

We have experienced a quick change in the weather over the past weeks with freezing and thawing. Many roads have begun to thaw and even already experienced mud last week. Last night’s snow only made the issues more difficult to deal with.

Our hope is that the weather will cool down so that roads will re-freeze and we can then give them attention.  Plowing a thawed road leads to damage to the roads and is extremely hard on our equipment.

We understand the frustration of the residents as we feel it also.  We are here and will stay as proactive as possible as mud season gets underway.

Thank you, DPW
