Snow stakes (markers) placed by town personnel are for the sole purpose of delineating obstructions or points of curve for plow drivers during snow removal operations. They are strategically placed to guide us, but not to obstruct or impede our operations.
During storms or heavy accumulations, we may perform a detail called "benching" or "shelving." At that time, stakes (markers) may become vulnerable and subject to damage from shelving.
The Town does not repair or replace damaged markers placed in the right-of-way by homeowners.
