Machias Public Works 2016 – 2017

Machias Public Works had a very productive year with spring cleanup, sweeping sidewalks, parking lots, roadways and trash removal.

Machias Public Works painted 47 crosswalks, striping parking lots and along side roadways throughout town.  Public Works continues to provide lawn care to town owned lawns including 5 cemeteries, school grounds and care of flowers.

Machias Public Works snow removal cost was up this last winter due to the large snow fall.  Public Works crew worked long hours to keep streets, roads and parking lots open, along with outside help to remove snow and widen streets.

The town has continued with the paving program with the low cost of asphalt and public works crew preparing streets and roads.

Machias Public Works would like to thank the work crews at Down East Correctional Facility for their continued support and assistance.  These work crews save the town thousands of dollars yearly with mowing cemeteries and carpentry work.
