Term and Long-Term Plans:
We intend to seek additional and new grant funding for our projects as well as use newly developed products to enhance our road and bridge maintenance.
We have upgraded our fleet vehicles to provide better and more responsive snow and ice control in the winter months. We are also using technology to monitor our crews to know their location, work production and performance.
