Fall dirt road maintenance will begin in October. DPW employees will be blowing leaf debris away from dirt road ditchlines. Please do not blow or sweep any leaves that have collected on your property back onto the road. Remove or bag leaves and dispose of properly.
Eversource along with Asplundh Tree contractors will be working in various parts of town for the next several months on several utility enhancement projects including tree trimming and some tree removal. The areas of town with the most activity include sections of; Exeter Rd, Trumbull Hwy, Goshen Hill Rd, Bender Rd, Gates Rd, Jordan Ln, Old Route 89 and Rafferty Rd. Residents please be careful when passing through Work Zones and if residents plan on picking any wood left behind please be mindful of your safety while doing so.
To help celebrate Earth Day, for the month of April residents can pick up specially-ordered trash bags from the Selectmen's Office at Town Hall to do some road side cleanup in your own neighborhood. Once filled, you can dump them for free at the solid waste facility during business hours or call 860-642-6100 for public works pick-up. Filled bags may also be brought to the Town Green during Earth Day festivities on April 29, 2017 for disposal into leaf bin located on the unpaved portion of the public parking lot.
