On Friday's edition of Portsmouth this Week, host Jeff Richard interviewed Portsmouth Department of Public Works Director Dave Kehew and discussed the vital work that the DPW accomplished to get roads and intersections cleared of snow after winter storm NEMO. Director Kehew complimented the work ethic of his full time and part time workers during the storm, and attributed the lack of any major problems in Portsmouth to their hard work and long hours behind the wheel of snow plows, trucks and other equipment. One of the more interesting issues discussed was the complicated system of state and town roads and the division of responsibilities between state and town public works departments to clear them.
