Update on Available Resources

Hello Neighbors – On behalf of the Selectboard,  a few updates on available resources as we continue cleanup and begin rebuilding on Saturday July 15th

  • Bagged household trash and recycling is available (as usual) at the Town Recycling center on Sawmill Road.  Thank you to John Cookson and Team for keeping this important service up and running!
  • Flood debris can be deposited in a dumpster – newly installed- on the common.  Please separate metal and put it on the trailer beside the dumpster.  If the dumpster fills, please come back another time, it will be emptied and reinstalled as rapidly as possible.
  • Water – The National Guard has dropped off pallets of bottled water at Neighbors in Action.  Please come pick up 16 oz bottles or 5-gallon with pumps.  Clean bulk water (bring your own tanks/containers to fill) is also available at Neighbors in Action and the Village Store.
  • Free Gas Update – free gas will NOT be available until Monday or Tuesday. Neighbors, with apologies, our dispensing mechanism is not working properly today and the gas in the tanks by the Willey Building will not be available for flood relief until Monday or Tuesday.  Apologies for the inconvenience, updates ASAP and thank you for your patience. Once the issue is resolved 1700 gallons  of free regular unleaded gasoline will be available from the large tank in the Willey Building parking lot.  Protocol for pickup follows:
    • Gas is only for flood/disaster relief purposes – ATVs for residents on blocked roads, generators, etc.  You will need to sign a register for any gas you collect.
    • The tank is locked – please locate one of the following people to open it for you – Johanna Thibault at Harry’s Hardware, Fire Chiefs Dean Deasy 802-595-5748 & Will Ameden 802-917-1162, Assistant Town Clerk Michelle Leclerc (emergency only) 802-562-2279.
  • Lunch and Dinner – a reminder that our wonderful friends at Neighbors in Action will have lunch and dinner available 12-3PM and 4:30-6:30PM for anyone affected by the flood, those helping with the cleanup, or anyone in need

Have a great day, please check in on your neighbors and stay safe,

In Community, -Mike, Fred, Skip, RD, Karen
