The selectboard would like to inform residents that we will be temporarily storing stone this winter at the sewer plant, in anticipation of mud season 2024. As mud season seems to arrive earlier and earlier each year, the availability of material and the timing of opening pits has previously left us at risk of not having material available to address the immediate needs of our roads during the spring.
Earlier this year, we had decided to stockpile this type of material at the Town Garage on the East Randolph Rd, which required some prep work at that location and was planned to take place this summer. Unfortunately the floods of July diverted our Road Crew and equipment to flood recovery. Our Road Crew will tackle this during the summer of 2024 and our residents can expect the Town Garage location to be the stockpile site in the future.
We recognize that this space has been a point of concern by residents over the years, and want to assure you that this is a temporary arrangement.
