Subject: RE: Township Snow Removal


south east SD
Our township owns it's road grader and a part time driver.

When things get bad we hire a payloader to push back big drifts.

I'm on the board.

I live on the county line and have to drive on the roads where 4 different townships plow the roads.
Ours is usually done first, one to the west is next, one to the east is secound to last and the township 2 miles west of me is hit or miss. Why are are they last? Because one contractor quit and another picked them up and is spread to thin.

Just heard a big contractor that did 10 townships is getting out of snow removal business next year.
Those townships are gonna get a lesson in snow removal.

For the people who moved into the township thinking we should go by at 5 am every morning better get a tractor and loader and scoop themselves out, it not gonna happen.

Our grader Is 5 years old with 6 wheel drive. We have 60 miles to cover, that's both side at 10 mph.
What's that 6 hour Shift? But you have to turn backup, hit some spots numbers times, 8 or 10 hours? It's not easy.

Oh now you want to get back in and the wind is blowing. Better have a plan or stay in town so you can get to your job.

My wife and I lived on our farm, both had in town jobs for 15 years and always had a plan. Before I was on the board I called township once where the T intersection was blocked for 3 days, I blew it out with my snowblower and then called. Only asked if the road grader had broke down? Nope just forgot to do that road, it happens.
