There have been some questions from residents about trees and branches that came down in their yards during the recent storms. Now that the snow is melting, Public Works will be clearing the limbs that fell onto the roads during the storm and were cleared from the road to the side. The Town does not clear branches or trees from private property or remove branches that are placed by homeowners into the right of way.
The Transfer Station will waive the normal fee for dropping off branches 3 inch in diameter or less and sticks through the end of April. Please call John Jones or Tony Gallicchio at Public Works (860) 295-6229, if you have any questions or if you spot a potentially dangerous tree that might come down onto town roads.
