As winter approaches, it is a good time to prepare your households for the heavy rains, power outages and falling debris that inevitably occur throughout our town during a typical wet weather season. Your public works department has worked hard this fall to insure our storm drainage system performs well during heavy rainfall events.
This is a reminder to keep your flashlights filled with fresh batteries and in a handy location as well as candles and lanterns to help deal with a small scale power outage. For those concerned with the possibility of small scale flooding issues, the Town offers free of charge up to 20 free sandbags to its residents. They need only come down to the Public Works Corporation Yard at 99 Station Lane and load them up. The facility is located behind the permit center and is available 24/7/365.
During the worst weather episodes, you can count on your Public Works and Police Departments to be there. Please remember that if you must travel during a storm, to observe our vehicles with their trademark flashing amber lights. This could be a sign of a down tree or flooding, but it generally marks a worker in the streets away from their vehicle.
So please remember to look out for us while we're looking out for you!
