We just experienced our first winter weather event of the season. Many thanks to the Department of Public Works for pre-treating the roads in advance of the storm and for the quick cleanup when the snow ended. Thank you to the residents who, as per ordinance, moved vehicles and obstructions off the streets allowing for a safer and more complete snow removal.
