11/15/2016 - Public Works Wins at Snow Plow Safety Event
Daniel McNamara, an 18-month employee of the Town of Fairfield DPW’s Highway Department, took 2nd Prize in the 2016 Snow Plow Safety Roadeo which took place in Wallingford, Connecticut.

The Roadeo, sponsored by the Connecticut Association of Street and Highway Officials (CASHO), is an annual snow plow driving competition in which 55 DPW drivers from 17 municipalities across Connecticut battle it out through a challenging obstacle course. Drivers are rated according to their driving proficiency, skills and safe driving abilities.

Superintendent Scott Bartlett extended his congratulations to Dan and Fairfield’s entire Public Works Department, saying, “With only a 1-point difference between first and second place, I couldn’t be more pleased with Dan’s win, or more proud of our DPW team."
