This is the time of year when the Town is doing a lot of grading, mowing, street sweeping, etc., and using a lot of heavy equipment. Public Works staff have recently had issues with children running around this equipment, while in operation, thinking it’s a game and putting themselves in great danger. It is extremely hard for the operators to see these children playing around this big equipment and is making it difficult to get the work done.
Parents, we ask you please speak to your children and let them know the danger they are putting themselves in, and to stay away from all equipment when it is in use. With street sweeping starting, this is also a big concern for the operator who has also asked that parents speak to their children about the dangers of playing around this equipment while in use, and to keep away.
Thank you for your immediate attention to this serious matter.
Director of Public Works
