Message to Mount Desert Residents for the Public Works Department:

Good morning: 

The highway crew has been at it all night keeping the roads open. Every member of the crew is in. This might not sound like much, and we do take it for granted at times, but it is a big deal. Please bear with us as we move the snow – we are running out of room to put it. We will get to the sidewalks when we can but for  now are concentrating on the roads. The sidewalk plow is experiencing mechanical problems and is limping along with parts to make the repairs due us Thursday the 5th. Route 3 between Little Long Pond and the sea wall is down  to one lane due to drifting. We are in the process of getting it open to two lanes with the backhoe. This is one of the State roads we take care of in the winter. The wastewater crew has been scrambling from plant to plant, Seal Harbor to Northeast Harbor to Somesville, keeping portable heaters fueled and  running so portions of the clarifier’s – the domed tanks - do  not freeze solid and put us in violation of our DEP licenses. Our solid waste staff has been backtracking when it is safe to do so getting garbage that was put out at varying times due to the storms throwing off our schedules. From today thru the end of the week we are on the regular schedule, weather permitting. The walkways around the town office will be cleared by noon today if not sooner. 

In 14 years I have never had a crew member  not come in when called and stay in until released to go home to take care of their own driveways and yards. We have a great crew in public works and I thank them. We appreciate the patience of all those we serve thru this “real” winter. If you have any questions please call Tony Smith at 276-5743.


Thank you.
