The Public Works department is on standby and ready to deploy sand trucks to sand sections of Bedford as ice and snow develops. Pre-treatment is done in certain areas that are known to have issues from past icing.
Once Public Works receives word on poor road conditions, trucks are deployed to distribute sand. In addition to sanding the Police Department and Fire Station parking lots, the trucks will also sand the Library and City Hall Buildings, if open. Crews will also focus on bridges, hills, and other areas as needed. As always, Public Works staff is on call 24/7 for any water, sewer, and street issues.
