Help the town help you

Town employees cannot be everywhere so they are asking you to take the time to report any visible damage to roads and infrastructure systems so they can get to them quicker to help you.

The flooding of May 1 – 2, 2010 was a 500 year event. The town received more than 10 inches of rain in approximately 30 hours. Our infrastructure system cannot be designed to handle such an event. If you know of damage to public facilities such as roads, drain pipes, headwalls, etc, please click here for a notification form and we will work to make needed repairs. Work will be prioritized as to critical health and safety needs and we will work diligently to make the needed repair as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience.
The town website is calling this last weekend a 500 year event. after the massive number of lingering snowfalls we had this last winter I'm starting to think I might want to update my emergency kit. My column two weeks ago was on how to basically prepare for tornadoes, but it looks like I picked the wrong disaster.
