The Field Operations Department is comprised of staff who are assigned to Streets and Roads, Sanitation, Transfer Station operations, Recycling Center operations, Parks and Equipment and Vehicle Maintenance. The Field Operations provides year round maintenance services to the Town’s 125 plus miles of roadways, public drainage courses, parking lots, parks and other Town-owned open space areas. Field Operations personnel also provide for annual curbside leaf collection and disposal, winter snow and deicing efforts, street sweeping, catch basin cleaning, and replacement of asphalt curbing and road patching services.

The Department’s Director of Field Operations also functions as the Town’s Tree Warden and oversees the maintenance and where applicable, removal of all trees located on Town property or within the Town’s Right of Way (ROW). In the fall of each year, the department operates a leaf collection program, which includes a six week program for scheduled pickup for loose leaves placed at the curb and those placed in brown biodegradable bags.

Equipment Maintenance

Under the supervision of the Director of Field Operations the Town equipment maintenance department is responsible for keeping all of the Town’s vehicles, trucks and equipment operational. Department equipment includes, but is not limited to, plow trucks, sanitation trucks, recycling trucks, large lawn mowing vehicles, street sweepers, wood chippers, lawn maintenance equipment and more. A working foreman and three mechanics maintain and repair all Town-owned vehicles and equipment, including police vehicles and general Town vehicles utilized for day to day operations.
