Department of Public Works

The Pomfret Department of Public Works is made up of five full-time, and one part-time, employees, including the Public Works Road Foreman– who oversees the department.  They share skills as mechanic, welder, equipment operator, driver, and laborer.

The department maintains 60 miles of improved and 8 miles of unimproved roads.  Also maintained are bridges, drainage, resurfacing projects, trees, and winter snow and ice removal.  They service many other needs of the Town including building maintenance and repair, ground maintenance support at the Recreation Park, trail maintenance, and labor during Bulky Waste.

For the convenience of Pomfret residents the DPW offers two 5-gallon pails of sand per winter season, per resident.  You bring the pails!

Waste oil disposal is also available year-round.  A separate container is also available for anti-freeze.

Both can be accessed at the highway garage Monday thru Friday from 7:00 AM – 2:30 PM.

The DPW Fleet of Vehicles includes 3 Peterbuilts and 2 Internationals – four of which are used as plow trucks in the season – an F-450 dump truck, a Chevrolet and a Dodge pick-up, one Chevrolet Suburban,  and an E-350 Van that is in use by the Recreation Department.
