Highway Department

(315) 682-9544

Thomas Purcell, Highway Superintendent

 

 

The Highway Department is a dedicated team that provides snow removal, sweeping and resurfacing of Pompey’s 65-plus miles of roads owned by the Town and 30 miles of County roads. The Highway Department also maintains town-wide drainage, infrastructure and provides care for abandoned cemeteries.   The Highway Garage provides on-site maintenance, repairs and storage of vehicles and equipment in support of the Department’s extensive responsibilities.

During the summer if our road crews are working on the roads in your neighborhood, please try not to park your car on the side of the road between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. In return, we will make every effort to do our job with as little disruption to your daily schedule as possible. At no time will emergency vehicles be cut off from your home, or will you be prevented from accessing your home.

Sometimes during the summer months, we may experience heavy downpours. To facilitate proper drainage, always keep all debris including garbage, grass, twigs, and leaves away from the storm drain. At no time should you be piling yard debris on or near a storm drain. In addition to your vigilant maintenance, we also send crews out to make sure that your storm drain is properly maintained to help facilitate proper drainage from your area.

While our crews are working in your area, please remember the equipment they are using is large, noisy, and sometimes has obstructed views. Your Town highway workers are our neighbors, friends, and family. Please respect them by slowing down, being patient, and giving them as much room to work as possible.

Brush and tree parts that are removed from properties in the Town of Pompey may be brought to the Highway Department Monday-Thursday, 7:00am-4:00pm. There is no charge to the Town of Pompey residents for this service. If you cannot get here during these hours, OCCRA Jamesville and Amboy sites are open on Saturdays 9:00am-4:00pm, April 2 - November 30, and will be happy to accept your yard waste at a small fee. In return for this fee, they will provide you with mulch or compost. For more information, you can visit their website by copying the link and pasting it in your internet browser.
