Rain, Rain Go Away...
With July having dumped 18 inches of rain locally, the flooding shouldnt be a suroprise to anyove, given how saturated the groud was. That we lost as many raods and driveways was somewhat surpising, reminding us of the need to "build back better...and bigger". Bigger culverts, drain ditches etc.will be needed, if indeed, this is our "new normal, from Climate Change.
Please note, if your property recieved storm damage, call 211, to report it. If theaccumlative damage reaches the FEMA threashold Vermont can request an Emergnecy delcaration and receive fedral funds. Most of those funds will go to town roads, but there may be a possiblitly that some can go to help defray the costs of private damage. The important thing first, is to report the damage. Stay tuned.
Please turn to the Legislative Update page for reports on the 2021 session.
