The Highway Department is headed by a Superintendent who is elected to a four year term. They are responsible for the Town's 117 miles of roads; blacktopping, snow plowing, and general repair and maintenance. They also handle seasonal projects such as brush and leaf pickup, and special projects such as storm cleanup.
While the Esopus Highway Department services all town residents for brush, leaf, and other cleanup projects, we do not and cannot address plowing, drainage, and general maintenance issues on County and State roads in the Town of Esopus. We are also unable to assist with street lights or downed power lines.
