Town Highway Department
The Town Highway Department is responsible for general maintenance of all town dedicated roads. This includes paving and sealing, cleaning ditches, tree and brush trimming in the town rights of way, mowing roadsides, and plowing and salting during the winter months. In the spring the highway crew vacuums gutters and intersections where needed.
The Highway Department also manages the fuel system that provides fuel for the town, village, Victor Fire Department, and the Victor Farmington Ambulance Corps.
Do not follow plow trucks too closely. Keep a safe distance behind any large vehicle. If you cannot see their side mirrors, they cannot see you.
- What should I do if my mailbox is damaged by snow when my road was plowed?
Please report any damage to the Highway Department at 742-5094. Mailboxes are located in Town right-of-ways. An alternative to locating your mailbox in the right-of-way would be to pick up your mail at the post office. Highway personnel will repair damaged mailboxes and posts as time and weather permit if they are damaged during plowing. Replacements are limited to a standard box and pole.
- Where do I push the snow when my driveway is plowed?
Do NOT push snow into the road. Pile it away from the road edge to allow access to your mailbox and avoid problems with visibility when entering or exiting your driveway.
