[ARCHIVED] Manager's Message of the Week (9/1)

Dawn Francis, Town Manager

Winter Maintenance of Private Roads

The Colchester Selectboard will be discussing the snow/ice removal operations of 14 of 41 miles of private roads in the Town of Colchester at a meeting on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 6:30 PM, to be held in the Outer Bay Conference Room on the 3rd floor of the Town Offices at 781 Blakely Road.

The Selectboard will consider whether to:

  • Continue with the status quo (provide winter maintenance to 14 miles of the 41 miles of private roads) OR
  • Discontinue winter operations on all private roads OR
  • Provide winter maintenance to all private roadways if they meet established Town standards and are converted to public roadways.

You are invited to attend this meeting and offer your input. If you aren’t able to attend you may submit comments to Dawn Francis, Town Manager, via email at or call 264-5509 prior to the meeting.
