highway tips for Homeowners and Businesses
Belgian block driveways should be flush with the roadway.
Gravel driveways should have an apron that helps to contain any loose gravel. Before installing an apron, please see the Highway Superintendent to obtain a permit.
When mowing your lawn, please blow grass clippings off the roadway so as not to impede the flow of runoff water into storm drains. Grass clippings that go down storm drains add harmful nitrogen to the water supply, so please either mulch your clippings or bag and remove them.
Keep any vegetation from encroaching onto the Town right-of-ways.
Thank you for your cooperation!

Door Hanger Cards
When Highway personnel notice a property issue, they will leave a door hanger card for the homeowner. Please take note of the issue marked on the back of the card, and call the Highway Department at the number on the front of the card to discuss ways to remedy the situation.
