I agee. I have a family memeber who works for the highway dept. also in another town. When its 30 below and the snow is blowing he is out all night plowing while others are sleeping. I have seen him be at work for 24hrs, sleeping a few hours at a time in his plow truck in the garage. Don't complain until you try working that job see what its like to nearly get run over by speeding drivers in the summer. One of his co workers had a car rip a safety vest right off him while working in the road.How about getting up in the middle of the night to cut up a tree that has fallen in the road or clean up the remains of a drunk drivers car. If these people want to take a break, they deserve it. If you want to complain go work for a while and see how it really is. Remember that nice ski trip you wanted to take. Sorry you are on call no trips in the winter.
Thank you to all the people that work so hard to keep us safe.

There is abuse of time in all jobs. Norfolk employees do their fair share. The only one I think I'd question is the supervisor. He can't seem to keep himself away from the place of business that his woman runs. I very rarely go by that his truck isn't parked at the store. The rest if the crew seem like hard workers but the head honcho is pretty good at standing around with his hands in his pockets.

Seems like everybody likes to run the highway department down. But they know who to run to when they need help. And further more most people that complain don't know what work is.

I'm not running the highway dept down I'm running the guy that supervises the highway dept down. Oh and I work! All I'm saying is he should concentrate more on his job and not so much on being around his woman during the hours he's getting paid for. I'm sure she will still be around after hours.

Yet again you have no idea what talking The town pays him to be on call 24/7. So tell me what hours would like him not to see his woman. I am sure your job doesn't involve much thought. You put your 8 hours in and don't have to worry about work till the next day.

Morons! You want to have garbage pickup? Pay for it like the rest of the towns. If you don't like it move!
