City of Oconomowoc rolls out snow cleanup plan heading into Friday

The snow event we're in the middle of means that cleanup crews like the staff for the City of Oconomowoc will be putting in long hours over the next couple of days.

Public Works Director Mark Frye said Thursday afternoon the city had three trucks out salting roads between 1 and 3 a.m. and beyond the trucks, 17 pieces of snow equipment were out working on snow removal this morning until 10:30 a.m.

"Between 10:30 and 3:30 pm eight trucks were working on clean up and opening catch basins to reduce street flooding from the rain," said Frye.

And the work continues from now until Friday when Frye said three trucks will be in the city working until midnight to keep the main roads clear and available to assist any emergency personnel that may need help.

"Starting at midnight, the snow is predicted to be done by then, we will once again have 17 pieces of equipment working on snow removal. The crews will work 16 hours on Friday and come back in at midnight to remove the snow from the downtown in time for the last shopping weekend before Christmas," said Frye.

He added that it takes employees from the city Public Works, Parks, Wastewater, Water and Electric departments to clear and remove snow. "We are fortunate to have employees dedicated to working multiple, 16-hour days especially when the snow events go on for an extended period of time," said Frye.
