A Snow Removal Operations, Management, and Routing Study for 18 Municipalities in Western Connecticut
As the State of Connecticut is undergoing a budget crisis, new types of cooperation for economic efficiencies are being sought within municipalities, between adjacent municipalities, and for municipalities across our region. Municipalities might realize significant efficiencies and cost savings by optimizing operations and planning, as well as cooperative efforts with adjacent communities.
In this study, the Vendor will assist the municipalities of Western Connecticut and PW management, by evaluating current planning and operational practices. Because of the importance and complexity of snow removal, it is critical that this project accommodate technical, geographic, and procedural constraints for each municipality involved in the project and understand local snow removal management and implementation issues. The selected Vendor will be asked to work closely with each of the municipalities involved in the project and provide iterative feedback while receiving input from municipal public works professionals about their local snow removal systems. This project is the first phase in a long-term effort to further improve cooperation and potential efficiencies. The project must be completed by Aug 9th, 2018.
The study will be broken into the following components:
• A data collection phase involving each of the participating municipalities where baseline information is collected about snow storm responses, operations, and management practices;
• An analytics phase that evaluates routing optimization using GIS-type tools including iterative evaluation of proposed routing with extensive guidance and outreach with PW professionals;
• An operations evaluation phase where the Vendor provides recommendations for Best Management Practices;
• And a planning document that synthesizes the analyses and provides guidance for long-term improvements both locally and regionally.

• Community Participation- The Village of Mamaroneck continues to recognize the importance of public participation in the planning process. The consultant shall provide the Village of Mamaroneck with a plan for public outreach and engagement in the proposal. The consultant shall facilitate at least one public workshop with community members. The consultant will facilitate and organize input from appropriate volunteer boards, including the Planning Board, Harbor Coastal Zone Management Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, Board of Architectural Review, Committee for the Environment, Tree Committee, and the Flood Mitigation Advisory Committee. The consultant will facilitate at least one global workshop with representatives from these volunteer boards. Furthermore, the consultant will interface with the Planning Department and other appropriate departments, such as the Manager’s Office, Department of Public Works, etc., who will provide input and guidance to the consultant regarding ongoing projects and initiatives.
