Our Streets crew and our Water & Sewer staff become plowmen in the winter.
In the GL we allocate their time to Winter Maintenance lines as opposed to
their regular department.

I'm wondering how other Towns handle plowing during the winter - do you hire
on extra "seasonal" people to help plow or do you "make do" with what you
have?  If you hire "seasonal" employees, have you had the problem of them in
turn filing for unemployment once it stops snowing?  Thanks.
