The Proctor Highway Department is staffed with three full-time employees including the Road Commissioner. The Department is responsible for the operation and maintenance of Town roads, bridges, sidewalks, the storm water collection system, and public lands and buildings. They also assist the Water & Sewer Department, Recreation Programs, the Transfer Station and others as needed when help and heavy equipment is needed. The Department operates a variety of equipment including dump trucks, backhoe, loader, mowing equipment, and all types of power tools.
In addition to routine operation and maintenance work (snow plowing, applying calcium chloride, mowing, and many more minor tasks) the Department develops an annual work plan to provide more focused improvement to the town’s highway infrastructure. The Proctor Selectboard approves the Highway Department work plan. The work plan for Fiscal Year 2011 (July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011) was approved on May 24, 2010.
