Windham Hill Road Closure Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

  • PORTIONS OF WINDHAM HILL ROAD WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY, TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY FROM 6 AM to 6 PM (approximately) AUGUST 17, 18 and 19.

THINK AHEAD AND PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY

According to Selectman, Kord Scott,

  • Monday – The plan is to replace the 4-5 culverts in the “South End” on Windham Hill Road between the south entrance of Burbee Pond Road and Chase Road in South Windham.  Locals who are familiar with the route can take Old Cheney Road off of Burbee Pond Road to Windham Hill Road in Jamaica to detour around the South End work – at their own risk, if desired – as it is a one way road in some areas. 
  • Tuesday – The 4-5 culverts in the “North End” of Windham Hill Road between the Town Garage and Lawrence Four Corners at RT121 will be replaced. Locals who are familiar can take Harrington Road, in front of the Meeting House (if you can get to Harrington; there are culverts that need to be replaced in this section that are south of Harrington Road) to Glebe Mountain Road to Route 121 to detour around the North End work. 
  • Wednesday –  extra day if needed.
  • We should alert people to find another route around those areas while the work is being done. But, we do not guarantee that there will be easy access, or directions to the detours – as there will be a lot of activity going on. The work crews will need to stay focused on getting the work done.
  • In both cases, it would be best to reiterate that people should plan for extra travel time next week and plan other routes that avoid the areas totally – and take the attitude that the road will be closed as indicated.
  • Our crew will be on site to assist the contractors and provide some help with traffic control – basically to keep people away.
  • Emergency services will be represented on site and in the case of unavoidable emergency traffic like a fire or ambulance, the crew and contractor will be prepared to get them through the work site.

THINK AHEAD AND PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY!

Efficiency VT will pay 75% of the cost of a weatherization project

Efficiency Vermont is offering some terrific incentives to Vermonters who want to save money and energy by weatherizing their homes this summer.  Until Aug. 31, or until funds run out, Efficiency VT will pay 75% of the cost of a weatherization project (up to $5,500) to low and moderate income Vermonters who work with an Efficiency Excellence Network contractor. Through their Home Energy Loan program, Efficiency Vermont will also make the first six months of payments for customers (or up to $900), for loans applied for before 10/31. That means most Vermonters can now complete a comprehensive weatherization project for around $40 a month, with the first six months of payments waived.  Higher-income customers will receive incentives of 50% off their project cost, up to $2,000, and below market-rate financing.

Low- and moderate-income Vermonters can also receive $50 back on qualifying energy efficient products that are purchased before August 31, including ENERGY STAR® certified window air conditioning units, dehumidifiers, air purifiers, freezers and indoor grow lights (DLC-certified). The 0% interest Home Energy Loan can also be applied to these purchases.

In Windham County, the household income limits to qualify for low and moderate income incentives are as follows:

People in Household                     Household Income Limit

1                                                     $66,400

2                                                     $75,800

3                                                     $85,400

4                                                     $94,800

5                                                     $102,400

These incentives are supposed to expire on August 31.  There is some possibility the deadline will be extended, but if you are interested in receiving these benefits, don’t wait.  If you have questions, go to the Efficiency Vermont webpage and click on “rebates”. Or, you may contact Bill Dunkel, town energy coordinator, at bdunkel1455@gmail.com, or by calling 874-4131.

West River Modified Union Education District to Organize

The legal voters of the West River Modified Union Education District, comprising the voters of the Towns of Brookline, Jamaica, Newfane, and Townshend for prekindergarten through Grade 12 and the Town of Windham for Grades 7-12 will meet at the Leland and Gray Middle High School in Townshend, VT, on Monday June 26th at 7:00 pm.

Immediately following this Special Meeting, the West River Modified Union Education District will organize and elect its very first officers.

“There is excitement around creating a new school district and further unifying the Leland and Gray towns,” stated Windham Central Supervisory Union Superintendent Bill Anton.

The creation of the West River Modified Union Education District is the result of the work of the Leland & Gray Towns Act 46 Study Committee. The elected officials who will make up the new school district board have been meeting informally as a gathering of citizens.

“The members of the new board are excited and ready to continue the work of the study committee. Taking the plan for the new district from the 10,000 foot level to the operational level is challenging but rewarding work,” according to Joe Winrich, Study Committee Chair.
