Public Works Department


The Crew presently consists of Leonard McCulloch, the Public Works Supervisor.  Don White and Greg Allen are Public Works Technicians.  My name is Mike Owens, I am the Public Works Director for the Town of Hotchkiss.

As 2012 comes to an end, the Public Works Crew would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  We have had a very warm and dry year.  With precipitation at about 50% of normal, I would like to remind folks that water conservation is very important for 2013.  When the snow does come, I ask property owners to keep the sidewalks in front of their businesses and homes clear of snow and ice.   If you do not have room to store the shoveled snow on your property and must shovel snow into Town streets, please take the snow a few feet beyond the curb.  Taking the snow beyond the curb will keep the curb flow line open for drainage when melting does occur.  It is also easier for Public Works to clear snow from parking areas if the snow is thrown further into the street.

Thank you for helping keep our streets and sidewalks safe during the winter months.
