Mayor George Apel on Tuesday publicly thanked workers from the Department of Public Works and the Parks and Recreation Department for their efforts during the recent blizzard.
Apel said most of the town's 110 miles of roadways were made passable in less than 48 hours by DPW crews.
"It wasn't a job well done," Apel said, "It was a fantastic job."
Apel added that folks from other towns frequently comment after storms that "they know when they are in Vernon" because of the condition of the roads.
Apel said that the Parks and Recreation staff took on the task of public venues and school parking lots and cleared them in a timely fashion.
"Another fantastic job," Apel said.
Apel read citations for each department and they were followed by applause from those at Tuesday's Town Council meeting.
"My mother is 85 and lives in Manchester. On Monday she still did not have a plow on her street," Deputy Mayor Brian Motola said. "For me, it was like a regular snow day. I just went to work."
