Snow Removal
The safety of our citizens is of the utmost importance to the Highway Department.  Our goal is to clear the roads in a timely manner.  All roads should be free of vehicles and/or other obstructions during a snow and ice event.   In order to do this, all vehicles and or other obstructions should be off roadways during a snow and or ice event. Your cooperation helps us to clear the roads safely and efficiently.
Mailbox Damage
If your mailbox is damaged by a Town of Owego Highway Department vehicle and/or piece of equipment, it is the policy of the Town of Owego to reimburse a homeowner up to $30.00 for any damages to their mailbox.  If your mailbox has been damaged, you will need to submit a voucher form Voucher (PDF) along with a receipt showing the repairs and/or replacement of your mailbox.  Write your name and address beside “Issued to”, sign and date the voucher next to the FOB; then return the voucher and receipt to the Town of Owego Highway Department, 70 Delphine Street, Owego, NY 13827

Dead Animals
Should you see a dead deer along the road, please contact our office and we will make arrangements to dispose of it. We do not dispose of other animals.
Driveway Permits
The Highway Department installs and maintains driveway pipes.  In order to have a driveway pipe installed, you will need to obtain a driveway permit.  Please contact our office to obtain the permit.  The fee is $25.00.  The permittee must purchase the pipe and make arrangements to have it delivered to the driveway site.  Once the pipe is delivered, the Highway Department will make the necessary arrangements to install it.  These arrangements include contacting Dig Safely New York to make certain there are no underground cables at the dig site.  Once we receive clearance, we can safely install the pipe.
