    Some of our contractor requirements in our village:

    1. Truck(s) must be avail. 24/7
    2. Trucks must remain on village roads until snow/ice control is complete
    3. We provide salt, but will tell you how we want certain situstions salted.
    4. Log sheet must be filled out for each call-out (hours worked, mileage, salt used)
    5. We have back charges that we enforce for neglect (excessive mailbox hits, sod damage, roads not cleaned properly)

    Hope this helps.
