BEAVERCREEK — The City of Beavercreek Public Service Department recently prepped and unveiled its snow equipment Nov. 8 at the City of Beavercreek Municipal Maintenance Facility 789 Orchard Lane.

Snow plow operators and 16 trucks responsible for maintaining over 550 miles of roadway within the City of Beavercreek were presented. This event marks the beginning of the winter season for our crews and displays the department’s readiness and ability to respond to any snow or ice situation in Beavercreek. It showcases operator skills in a simulated city street and cul-de-sac allowing you to see first-hand the daily challenges snow plow operators face.

Todd Brandenburg is the road superintendent.
