From Robert Viscardi, Highway Superintendent:
1. Due to the recent wind events, the Town of Clarkson Highway Department started brush pick-up this morning and we will make one pass through town starting December 20th. Please place the brush at the road in 6’ lengths.
2. We are also accepting brush (i.e., limbs and Christmas trees; no stumps) in the concrete bin in front of the highway garage located at 3623 Lake Road. The bin is located on the N side of the wooden salt barn and is marked appropriately. Please make sure the brush is placed INSIDE the bin. The bin will be open immediately until January 9th.
3. If you have other concerns or wish to arrange for the brush trailer, please call the office @ 585-637-1132.
Good Morning Clarkson — HWY Superintendent Bob Viscardi and his crew have worked through the night and with sunrise he was better able to assess the damage in the Town. Lots of trees and limbs are down, so as you begin clean up, cut them into six foot lengths and place parallel to the road. HWY will make a pass through the Town starting the week of Monday, December 20.
He also shared that a tree took down a utility pole on Gilmore Road and that is the cause of most of the remaining power outages. We are waiting for National Grid for the tree removal and restoration of power. This may take some time to accomplish.In true Clarkson fashion we’ve already heard stories of neighbors helping neighbors.
Thank you and please stay safe!
