During major snowfall events on February 10th, March 8th, and March 19th, snow and ice were removed from driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, and fire hydrants. This allowed for ready access for emergency vehicles and access and egress from buildings as needed. The Truck Scale installation was completed on March 15, 2013.
