Machias Public Works 2015 – 2016

Machias Public Works had a busy year with spring clean up, sweeping streets, parking lots, and  sidewalks.

Machias Public Works paints 45 crosswalks as well as striping parking lots. Machias Public Works continues to provide lawn care to town owned lawns, including 4 cemeteries and the school grounds.  The Town has continued with their road paving, although paving was scaled  back from previous years, paving plans will continue this year.

Machias Public Works snow removal cost was down this year due to the low amount of snow. Machias Public Works crew worked to keep streets, roads, parking lots open, along with keeping sidewalks cleaned with the new tractor.
