Town’s Only Snowplow Driver Quits, So The Town Picks Up Shovels

Shoveling your own sidewalk is a pain, imagine having to clear out your entire town? That’s what the residents of Parsonsfield, Maine had to do when their only snowplow driver quit after they got 25-inches of the white stuff.

“People got together in our town and went out, plowed, salted, sanded, pushed back the banks, and went back out after the ice storm to make sure everything was good,” says Select Board member Tiffany Brendt. “They just did it.”

The nearby town of Cornish also helped Parsonsfield, which has a population of 19-hundred. Now, the town is working on a long-term snowplow contract so they’re not left with this dilemma again.
