The Town of Fowler maintains 56.25 Miles of Town Roads.
In the winter months the town plows 73.75 miles of roads which includes County Route 22 and 24.
We appreciate everyone’s patience this past year during our busy 2020 construction season. We have been steadily working on my goal of upgrading the Town roads and equipment.
This year we received a New Holland Boomer Tractor with a broom and mower on it. We have also paid off the 2020 Mack Plow Truck and have ordered a 2022 Mack to replace the 2000 International. This truck like the 2020 truck will be paid for using a USDA low interest bond and grant. I will continue looking for these grants to further my goal of safe roads and good safe equipment for our town.
In 2020 we resurfaced Kilkarney Court Road and 1.9 Miles of the Byrns Road. For 2021 we are planning on continuing our Byrns Road Project and taking a serious look at Swiss Hill Road and the East end of the Shantyville Road.
I would like to extend a special thanks to Jeff Hill who retired from the Highway Dept this year after over 15 years of dedicated service. We have hired Jacob Cunningham, who is a fully certified operator to replace him.
Please like and check out my Town of Fowler Highway Department Facebook Page to get current road conditions for our area during these winter months.
In a personal note, I would like to thank everyone for your support this year. It is your support that makes this team so successful.
Best wishes for a happy and safe new year in 2021 from the Town of Fowler Highway Crew: Randy Durham, Nelson Bice, Francis Cole, Larry Allen, John Walsh, David (Dennis) Travis and Jacob Cunningham.
