COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- In Otsego County Tuesday, the highway department is busy staying on top of the snowfall.
Crews in Cooperstown were out clearing the streets and sidewalks and digging out cars.
It's a tough job, no matter the county, but in an area as large and rural as Otsego, there is a formula, and timeline, to follow to keep the operation running efficiently.
"It's tough. Most of our beats are two to three hours and during the day you have a lot more traffic and you have to plow your intersections when it's snowing like this so it takes longer. But we manage – usually two to three hours,” said Otsego County Deputy Superintendent Richard Brimmer.
The highway department recommends that drivers slow down and be mindful of the plows.
