Palmyra Heated Highway Facility Facts & Figures
 

  • 1996 Town/Village Consolidation of Highway Services brought all Village fleet under existing Town Barn cold storage areas without any building expansions or improvements

  • Trucks have grown in size since two primary storage buildings were constructed in 1940 and 1975
     

  • Current Truck Barn undersized with 6 trucks jammed in 5 truck bays
     

  • Entire 10-truck fleet is stored in 3 different cold storage buildings
     

  • All truck block heaters plugged in all night long, which is leading cause of catastrophic highway facility fires
     

  • At $150-200K per truck, we need to insure and better protect our nearly $2M truck fleet
