The town Highway/Public Works Department is ready to take on Nemo this weekend.
Foreman Don Foyer said the plows are ready to go and the crews will deal with the storm as it comes.
Orange has enough salt/sand to handle the predicted situation and according to Foyer, they won’t use as much of that material since, for the most part there is more plowing than anything else with this type of storm.
Many homeowners already have placed plywood shields around thier mailboxes to protect them from damage from the pressure of the snow pushed over by the snow plows. If you haven’t it’s a good idea to do so as soon as possible.
Residents are reminded not to park on the road during the storm because cars will be tagged and towed at the owners expense.
If you are an Orange resident in need of sand to deal with icy driveways or walkways at your home, sand is available in the town Highway Department salt/sand shed behind Fire Station #2 off of Lambert and the Boston Post Road.
