Village Department of Public Works Improves Efficiency
Village Department of Public Works Superintendent Fred Zamparelle and his staff have been diligently preparing the leaf collecting and other equipment that will be needed for the fall and winter seasons. The leaf removal program kicked off in October. His department has also been continuing the extensive cleanup and repairs at the Eastern Parkway facility. He has reclaimed the overgrown areas and turned them into clean well-organized storage areas. The village's equipment and supplies are now neatly inventoried and maintenance schedules set and followed. Zamparelle is continuously seeking new ways to improve the department's efficiency, provide more services while reducing or maintaining the village's operating costs.
