Duties & Responsibilities
It is the goal of the Highway Department to keep its 80 miles of road in as good of shape as possible for safe travel for the traveling public all year round, no matter the time of year. The Highway Department performs all maintenance from brush removal to ditching, grading, culvert replacement, sign replacement and hot topping. We continue to provide excellent service to the residents for which they have both become a custom to and deserve.
