Highway Department

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 2019 construction season. We have been steadily working on my goal of upgrading the Town roads and equipment.

This year we received a new loader paid for by a New York State SAM Grant and a new Mack Tandem Plow Truck that was partially paid for by a USDA Grant and a USDA low interest loan.  I will continue looking for these grants to further my goal of safe roads and good equipment.

In 2020 we are planning on rebuilding and resurfacing more town roads.  We will be finishing the River Road, rebuilding .2 miles of Kilkarney Road, and moving to the Byrns Road. 

I would like to extend a special thanks to Jeff Hill who has worked for the Town over 15 years and will be retiring in March.  He will be missed.  Last year after the newsletter had gone to print we hired David Travis, he is now a fully certified operator for the Town.

Please check out the Town of Fowler Highway Department Facebook Page to get current road conditions for our area and updates on what your Highway Department is doing for you.

In a personal note, I would like to thank everyone for your support this year.  It was your support that made our team so successful. 
Best wishes for a happy and safe new year in 2020 from the Highway Crew: Randy Durham, Nelson Bice, Francis Cole, Jeffery Hill, Larry Allen, John Walsh, and David (Dennis) Travis.
