Highway Department

Responsibilities

The Schodack Highway Department provides residents with quality snow and ice removal, road repair, water and sewer services, signage, drainage, tree and brush cutting and removal within the Town's right of way. Fifteen department personnel maintain slightly over 100 miles of town roads, three water districts and four sewer districts.

Although hot-mix asphalt paving and surface treatments are contracted out, preparations for paving and surface treatments are done by town forces. Highway crews improve drainage and reconstruct failed sections of road-base prior to hot-mix paving.

Two part-time personnel maintain the grounds in historical cemeteries, the Town Park, Police Station, Transfer Station, Highway Department and the Town Hall.

We provide drinking water to our residents in water districts that meets or exceeds all standards established under the Safe Drinking Water Act.

An administrative assistant receives calls, orders day to day supplies and is responsible for the department payroll.
