The inmates are low risk individuals, at the end of their sentences, and provide thousands of man hours to the Town each year at no cost. The coordinators are responsible for scheduling daily activities of the inmates in coordination with the Highway Foreman to complete an effective working team. The inmates complete tasks such as demolition and cleaning during renovation projects, painting building interiors, snow removal, raking of leaves and general property maintenance..
