DPW Director Phil Roux tells TLS they are currently in the process of developing a plan and putting together a team for a third shift for the overnight hours.
Having an overnight shift would help the DPW become even more efficient, and save time by avoiding daytime traffic. It would help reduce traffic during trash collections.
The new shift, says Roux, would focus mainly on industrial and school areas, to avoid waking up sleeping residents.
In addition, says Roux, the Department is looking to conduct more road work on Saturdays to help alleviate traffic around town.
