A huge welcome goes out to all of our new members!!

It’s been a while since we’ve had some snow, now things are looking up. Please stay safe on the roads this week!

Some interesting government web sites that you may want to check out:

www.mhd.state.ma.us All things snow & ice related.

www.mass.gov (Under highway Dept, you can check out the snow & ice budget)

We have had some calls from people wanting to take our Hyrdaulics Hoisting Class. We do not have one scheduled at the moment. While the weather can be unpredictable this time of year, we will have our next class sometime in the spring. We will post all the information on this site as soon as we have things set up.

Stay safe and think SNOW!!

We have 2 more companies that do mobile inspections on equipment. One is TD&I out of Wareham (508)577-5567 and also F. Brewer Inspections out of Rockport (978)810-0926. Thanks to our members who passed this information on to us so we could pass it on to you!

The Board is precipitating talks with MassDOT regarding our next snow and ice contract. The Board of Directors of the MSICA are meeting and compiling our members needs and desires which we would like to see incorporated into the next agreement.

If you should have any thoughts please feel free to contact any one of our Directors, or contact our office at 888-842-SNOW.

Our annual membership billing went out on October 15th, 2009. While the majority of our members have paid their dues, their are still some members who have not. A second notice will be sent soon. We encourage everyone to please pay their 2009-2010 dues. We are solely funded by membership dues and donations. Every member counts.

A huge welcome goes out to all of our new members!!

And a sincere thank you to several members who took a year or two off and have decided that the benefits of membership are important! Welcome back!!

Our last Hydraulics Hoisting Class was a big success once again. We are currently working on arrangements for our next class. We hope to hold it in January, possibly in Braintree.

Some of our members have reported problems in finding someone to do mobile inspections on their equipment. We put the word out there and one of our members told us about Tri State Truck Center in Shrewsbury. They do mobile inspections. Their telephone number is (508)753-1200. We hope this is helpful for everyone who has had that problem. If you have any questions, please call Ali at (888)842-SNOW or email ali.msica@comcast.net. We wish you all a safe and happy holiday season. Think Snow!
