Road Report: With the recent blizzard the conversation focused on how the town’s patrolmen could best be notified when the county snowplows are pulled from the roads. There was also general discussion about phone call complaints, the number of miles of road in the town to be plowed; weather conditions, mailbox damage and equipment break downs caused by the blizzard. Plus the general frustration of the patrolmen with the people that felt they just could not stay home and the acknowledgement of those that called to thank the patrolmen for a job well done.
