The Town of Pittsville has engaged a private contractor to begin the town wide ditch cutting/clearing of the storm water ditches throughout town. This project and process was begun at the beginning of June and will continue for the next several months until completed.
During this time, the Town would appreciate all property owners/residents cooperation in removing any structure, equipment, and other obstacle within twenty (20) feet of the edge of the ditches, the right of way (row) easement in order to enable the contractor to properly cut/clear the ditch for maintenance.
Also, the contractor will be operating in a manner that will prioritize the ditches to be maintained so that all can be addressed during this time. For instance, the contractor may be in various areas before completing a specific section. However, as long as the area is cleared of any obstructions, the contractor will be cutting/clearing all ditches.
Anyone requiring further clarification on this very important project undertaken by the Town, should contact the Town Hall. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding as we continue and complete this project.
