the grounds of the munnerstadt building yard were bustling with activity on friday. vehicles were loaded with salt or brine, all prepared for possible use. "Winter can come, we are well prepared", says farm manager stefan sluzar.
The weather report does not promise anything good. Although a closed blanket of snow is not to be expected in Lower Franconia, snow may fall on the weekend and the roads may become slippery at any time. For this reason, the four vehicles were also loaded with salt, and the bauhof employees dispensed with the snow shovels for the time being. If, contrary to expectations, they are already needed this weekend, they are quickly assembled. "We have ordered winter road maintenance", says mayor helmut blank. This means that the drivers are on standby at the weekend and can be called out immediately if necessary.
Tractor for the west
the head of the depot is proud of the fleet of vehicles that has been expanded over the past few years. The tractor is only in its second year of use. "In high gear, driving 45 kilometers per hour", says the mayor. It will be used in the western districts of burghausen, reichenbach and windheim and on the access road to the thorax center in lower franconia. Even if the tractor is the latest acquisition, the unimog is the flagship vehicle in the fleet. It will be used in the eastern parts of the city."Because there is a long way to go", says stefan sluzar.
In addition to the city center, munnerstadt, including maria bildhausen, has eleven districts, some of which are connected to each other by municipal roads, for which the city also has to provide winter services.
