The City of Hawley Public Works Department is Putting in Long Hours this Winter

The City of Hawley Public Works Department hits the city streets at 4 a.m.; fist the plows, then the payloader, backhoe, skid loader and two tractors which they use to blow and widen intersections. And because winter has been relentless this winter, they have found themselves working around the clock, through the weekends and going for twelve-day stretches.  “I haven’t seen a winter like this since my first winter on the job back in 97-98. We moved 120 inches of snow that year, but the city has grown quite a bit since then,” Gerry Kluck explained.
