The Work Order Crew was established in the middle of 2004. This is a two-man crew with extensive use of part-time help and summer help. The purpose of this crew was to establish a group that could handle the day-to-day complaints that come into the highway department. This averages 5 to 7 calls per day. The formation of this crew enabled the other crews to perform their primary function without being disturbed on a daily basis. This has worked out well with tremendous results in productivity. This crew works year-round with the A-boom crew providing flagging and additional trimming functions.
