Winter Highway Maintenance Goal
The removal of snow and ice from Otter Tail County Highways is the most important job confronting county highway department maintenance personnel during the winter season. The safety of the traveling public and service ability of county highways are the primary concerns of the maintenance crews during this time.
Our goal is to keep people and products moving as efficiently and safely as possible on our county highways during adverse winter weather conditions within the limits of the financial resources available to the Otter Tail County Highway Department. To achieve this goal, it will be necessary to take into account questions of public policy and the balancing of competing policy objectives. Factors which will influence these decisions include cost considerations and the safety of members of the public and highway department personnel.
