Snow Plowing Status November 2018

The New Market Township Board published bids for winter snow plowing in September 2018.  The township received one bid for plowing asphalt roads from Thomas Trucking.  The bid was accepted.  Unfortunately, the township did not receive any bids for plowing the gravel roads.

The township board immediately started to look for options for snow removal on the gravel roads within the township.  Numerous contractors were asked if they were available and none were interested.  The board also checked with local townships (Cedar Lake, Castle Rock, Eureka) and received no interest in contracting their services to the township of New Market.

The township has leasing a loader with a wing, as passed at the November 8th board meeting.  The township has secured a local contractor, (Valley Construction) to operate the equipment.    The contractor has 4-5 operators available along with storage facilities.  All operators are full time heavy equipment skilled operators.

The loader/blade/wing combination should be able to plow approximately twice as fast as a grader.  We are confident that we will be able to keep up with the demand with this one piece of equipment.  If we cannot keep up – we will lease/rent more equipment.

Sincerely

New Market Township Board
