Town Manager William Ross praised town workers for their response to last weekend's snow storm.
Town Manager Bill Ross took the time at last night’s Mansfield Board of Selectmen meeting to praise the efforts of the DPW, Mansfield Electric and others who worked during and in the days following last weekend’s snow storm that saw over 30 inches of snow fall in Mansfield. “Our staff worked very hard during the storm to the point of exhaustion,” Ross said during his report to the board. “They spent a lot of time and worked very hard.” While admitting that it did take some time to get all the snow removed, Ross said that being in the jackpot area for snowfall extended the usual cleanup time but he would go over what went right and look at what needs improvement. Ross cited a piece of snow equipment from 1997 that was simply not up to the …

Mansfield residents, how well did the town handle the snowstorm?
Is your street clear? Are you still buried? Is your mailbox still standing? On Friday and Saturday, Mansfield experienced a snow storm it will not soon forget. Several residents took to Facebook to talk about the plowing. Yesterday, we asked how Mansfield residents what grade they would give the town for plowing the streets. Many admitted while there was still a lot of snow on the roads, they were appreciative of the fact that many of the plows were working as hard as they could to remove the snow. Here's what a few residents had to say: As the piles of snow remain, we want to know how you feel about the town's response (or state's) to yesterday's major snowstorm. Does the snow removal effort deserve a grade or do you agree with some of …

MANSFIELD PATCH STORM CENTRAL UPDATES, CLOSINGS & MORE: Saturday, Feb. 9 - 6:25 p.m. I took a drive around Mansfield shortly after 4:00 p.m. to see how the roads are. Most of the main roads are still rough, but manageable if you have to drive. If you don't have to drive anywhere tonight, it may be a good idea to spend the evening at home. Fire Department Chief Boldrighini was accurate in his earlier statement that the main roads are decent but there is still work to do in the developments and on the side roads. I did see the plows working near downtown, Route 106, and around the Cabot Business …
