Road Foremen Meet After Two Year Hiatus

Representatives from 19 towns met the last week in October 2021 at the Dover Town Garage to discuss issues relevant to their road crews. Whether their title is - road foreman, road commissioner, highway superintendent, or public works director - the folks who take care of your roads came together for what WRC calls a Road Foremen’s meeting—the first one in over two years. The meeting featured a packed agenda, with topics including the current and upcoming funding rounds for Grants in Aid, the Better Roads grant program, equipment grants, attendee’s experiences with leaf blowers and hydro seeders, how towns are using tables and smartphones for mapping, stone lined ditches, and salt and sand availability issues.

We were fortunate to have two members of the VTrans Better Roads program in attendance, and thank them for making the long drive down from up north (one came from the Northeast Kingdom). Selectboard members from two towns were also in attendance. While the meeting is primarily about providing road foremen a venue to discuss topics of concern to their town’s roads, other town staff and officials are certainly encouraged to attend. Their understanding of the increasingly complex issues their road crews face can only serve to strengthen town government.
