GPS for Snowplows

The streets division in Public Works has purchased and installed GPS units for the four-winged snow plow trucks and one for the street sweeper over the fall of 2019. These units will help monitor and assist with plowing operations for more efficiency and training purposes. 

The supervisor can log onto the computer to get real-time information on the direction of travel, how many miles each truck has traveled, speed, and even mechanical information. This tool greatly improves operations during and after snow events.
