Highway Department

Highway Department Mission Statement:

The mission of the Highway Department is to maintain the Town’s streets and storm water drains and culverts in safe and clean conditions. We also provide for safe movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic by performing necessary construction repairs, snow and ice removal, maintenance of traffic control devices, signs and markings, and supervision of the work of contractual service provider partners. We work cooperatively with other Town departments to achieve the mission of preserving Phillipston as a safe, picturesque community for its citizens to be proud of. We are here, first and foremost, to serve the citizens, our customers, and we take great pride in this task.

Tree Warden Mission Statement:

Through a proactive maintenance program, the Tree Warden maintains the town’s roadside landscape, preserving the green character that serves to build community pride, while promoting public safety through the elimination of hazardous trees. We seek to identify and reduce potential hazards to public and private property, while fostering the health of our rural forest through a system of proactive planning and proper maintenance.
