BENSON, Vt. — A small Vermont town has lost its entire road crew.

The Rutland Herald ( ) reports both members of the Benson road crew quit recently, leaving the community with no one to care for its 62 miles of roads.

Town Clerk Daphne Bartholomew wouldn’t say what prompted the road foreman to quit. The other member of the crew took another job.

Selectman Tory Tyminski, who is also the Benson road commissioner, says the town is now looking for applicants. They’d like to hire locals because it’s an on-demand job and when it comes to winter snow plowing they’d like someone who knows the roads.

Tyminski says most of Benson’s town roads are gravel.
