Kudos to the Town of Dartmouth, MA DPW for pre-treating the roads in anticipation of the snow. As always, your diligence is greatly appreciated 👍🏻😊👍🏻
Please join Chief Levesque and the members of DPD as we thank our two outstanding School Resource Officers, David Tavares and Lisa DaCosta, on National School Resource Officer Appreciation Day.

over 24 hrs later still no plow on my section of Maine Ave.. upper part of street plowed to Rhode island ave but still have two feet of snow in the road.. spoke to police dispatch last night as no DPW numbers were answered.. Was told " that street is not a priority" and that they are over whelmed. I get that there was a lot of snow that stretches resources but when I couldn't even go to work because not even one pass was made... I was told by the dispatcher to " call my work and have someone pick me up" If I couldn't get out of my driveway let alone go down the street how would they be able to??? That is not OK. I pay taxes just like everyone else and for them plow right up to Rhode Island ave and not continue down so the rest of the street can have access??? why?? If there was a medical emergency There was no way any police fire or rescue would have been able to help us.
I was told that I could call DPW Monday but they made be sensitive" as they have been working hard. I completely understand that yes they are working VERY hard but why do only a portion of the street and not clear the rest??? If they never came down Maine at all I would understand but to only do part and strand the rest of us is not OK..
I had to have someone come and plow out of pocket so I could get out to go to work today... That is not acceptable.
Could you kindly provide clarification regarding the specific chemicals that DPW applies to the roads to melt ice/snow?
*****Please note that my request is in not in in any way a criticism of how DPW manages winter storm road conditions, nor is it a springboard from which I intend to recommend alternative products. Product selection is your job, and you do it well. I appreciate the effort and long hours required from everyone in the department to do what they do.*****
I see from the "Snow and Ice Control Manual" that DPW " ... will typically use rock salt for deicing applications.", " ... pre-wetted with liquid deicer products ... " for the many benefits derived from such a mix, and that the choice of deicer products and materials is based on specific conditions (which makes perfect sense to me).
Any information and/or guidelines you provide will be helpful to residents who like to take their dogs out for winter walks and want to take appropriate steps to care for their pets who've been walking on deiced pavements.
Thank you for your assistance and a big thanks to DPW for their work during this (and every other) storm!

My new book, “So, You Think You Know the South Coast?”
Price $11.95 buy 2 for $15.00 on my website
This is a book that will entertain, enrich, and educate you!
“I love this book. I have learned so much and yes, I have been entertained with the trivia section. Great “treasures section.” I have bought 5 copies for Christmas gifts.”
I've lived here about 40 years and, still, learned many new things that made me appreciate this area even more. I liked the fact that you could pick up the book at any time or place and enjoy the commentary. Later, pick up another part and be drawn into it, again, but for different reasons. Of course, during the pandemic, my wife and I were able to venture out, on occasion, to visit some of these unique places, like the one in the Village of Onset (Wareham) to see the native statue of Aquene, which means "peace", as she overlooks the bay. There is much to see and appreciate in this quiet area and this book makes for a nice contribution to understand it all just a little better. Minor criticism, perhaps for me, was the lack of a quick index to easily locate something that I wanted to read, again. A fun book to read and enjoy.
This book is great. I am learning so much about the whole South Coast.

Personal use of city resources must be a violation of some kind.
She write's traffic citations and parks in a reserved spot for official use and does her personal shopping.....
Something is not right here.....
Will the town be asking Elizabeth Warren if the towns logo is offensive to her tribe?
Is the town of Dartmouth going to charge people who have wells the amount of water they pull out of the ground? I heard they want to put meters on the wells and charge for the water.
