BUFFALO – With snow in the forecast for Buffalo over the next few days, Mayor Byron

W. Brown, joined by Department of Public Works (DPW) Commissioner Steven Stepniak and Deputy Commissioner of Streets and Snow Removal Henry Jackson, today conducted the annual inspection of Buffalo’s snow fighting fleet at the Department of Public Works Broadway Garage.

“Buffalo is ready for winter weather,” said Mayor Brown who was surrounded by the City’s newest winter-combat equipment at the Broadway Garage. “Our snow fighting crew in the City of Buffalo does a great job preparing for any weather challenge that comes our way. Our residents and businesses can feel confident in the abilities of our skilled professionals and the specialized equipment.”

The City’s snow fighting crew consists of nearly 70 truck drivers, equipment operators and heavy equipment operators who will be called upon to help clear more than 800 miles of Buffalo roads when the snow starts to accumulate. New this year is one plow and 2 highlift/ plows. The City of Buffalo’s total winter fleet now includes 70 pieces of equipment, for a total investment of nearly $10 million since 2006. Over 20 other additional pieces of equipment are available, if needed, from other divisions within the Department of Public Works.

The City of Buffalo also has approximately 7,000 tons of salt on hand. The salt is being stored at the Broadway Garage and the Department of Public Work’s Fuhrmann Boulevard location. Mayor Brown also issued a reminder to residents that the City of Buffalo Seasonal Winter Parking Rules and Bus Route Regulations are now in effect.
