Works collaboratively with the HS who, in turn, reports to the TA.

Works closely with the HS to identify issues, determine priorities, and schedule work relating to major Town road-related infrastructure.

Works closely with the HS to develop and maintain a multi-year road plan that is shared with the TA, SB, and Advisory Committee for budget and warrant discussion and preparation.

Assists the HS with managing certain aspects of road-related projects for the Town. This involves, but is not limited to, working with an engineering consultant to design and prepare road RFPs and bid packages, scheduling meetings with residents, taking residents on informational road walks, and working with the Tree Warden, if necessary, to determine the number of trees needed to be removed relative to the completion of a road project.
