Update from Public Works on Storm


The recent snow system that delivered close to two feet of snow to the Calais area led to a significant effort by cleanup crews in the Public Works Department. According to Public Works Director Skeet Seelye, workers began preparing for the storm at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday and worked through until 5:30 p.m. Wednesday to clear as much as possible from roads and sidewalks.

 Seelye noted that the public could assist in the effort in a very important way: “People once again need to be reminded not to push snow onto the sidewalks as our sidewalk plow can’t get through and it also can damage the machine.”
