Windsor public works director applauds work crew

The Town Line staff

The Windsor Board Selectmen, at their meeting of December 19, 2023, heard Keith Hall, Public Works Director, report on the storm of December 18, 2023. He said truck #6 is still out of service.

He then praised the public works crew for working until 5 p.m., on December 18, during the wind and rain event, until they ran out of daylight. He said they did what they could do with the equipment available. With many downed trees and limbs, they were able to open all roads with at least one passable lane. There was no loss of roads nor bridges at the time, and flooding was held to a minimum. Town Manager Theresa Haskell has begun the FEMA paperwork for storm damages.

Tim Coston, Public Works driver and laborer, said that with the approval of the select board, effective immediately, the transfer station will no longer accept tires on rims.

Haskell reported the town received seven applications for the transfer station attendant position. They conducted six interviews last week, with one no show, and a decision will be made soon and training will begin.

In other business, Haskell handed out and reviewed the town’s 2023-24 three-month budget figures. There were no areas of concern.

The building code that was on the agenda will be reviewed in its entirety at a later date. Coston asked the other select board members to review page 6 closely when time approaches.
Haskell distributed nomination papers for the Spirit of America Award and asked the select board to think about possible candidates.
