The Milton Highway Department continues to provide high quality maintenance and construction services to the residents of Milton. The most important goal of the Highway Department is to keep the traveling public safe. Some of the services provided to ensure safe roads include winter plowing, right-of-way and drainage maintenance, sign replacement, guardrail installation and road paving.
Along with routine maintenance, the Highway Department expects to complete several important drainage projects during the upcoming year.

The Buildings & Grounds Department has increasing demands of maintenance at the Municipal Complex, Recreation Park, hiking trails at Eagle Mountain Natural Area, the Town Forest, and the Museum. In addition to the five cemeteries maintained by the Town and the Buildings and Grounds Department.
In the fall of 2001 the Town began maintaining the Historical Society Museum on School Street; site of the old Episcopal Church.
A planned expansion of the recreation playing fields was completed with a Phase I Archeology Study, and logging of the area for the new fields. The Vermont Army National Guard then started to stump and grub the area in preparation for grading, which is occurring this summer. This will allow us to potentially expand with additional playing fields and improve the overall use of the recreational area. The project should be completed by the beginning of FY 05-06 (July 2005) The Recreation Commission is continuously planning for future use of this property.
Milton is fortunate to own some wonderful facilities for public meetings, business, recreation and conservation.
We would like to thank Cyr Lumber for their generous donation of bark mulch for the Town’s Parks and Municipal Buildings,
Buildings and Grounds Department is continually developing new ways of improving efficiency and quality in the way the Town properties and equipment are maintained.
