Announcements

Announcements as of 2/1/2017

  1. Logging of the Barre Town Forest, consistent with the Town Forest Management Plan and overseen by an independent, certified forester, resumed this month. Forest users please keep clear of the northeast corner of the Barre Town Forest until logging is finished. This is the area near the intersection of Donahue and Littlejohn Roads. Look for that announcement here or on Front Porch Forum.
  2. Barre Town budget meetings are underway, the public is welcome. The Budget Committee will meet every Tuesday, at least through March, from 6:30pm to 8pm in the Barre Town Offices at 149 Websterville Rd. Attend to learn about Town operations that affect all of us. Note that during this period, Selectboard meetings will begin at 8pm to accommodate the Budget Committee meetings.
  3. Winter sand is available free to Barre Town residents outside of the public works fence at 129 Websterville Road. This service is for residential use only. Please follow instructions posted at the sand pile. Plan ahead because when you’ll most want it is when everyone else will, too! Click here for more info.
  4. When clearing snow from your property, remember that no snow is to be pushed across or into a town road, highway, or public sidewalk or stored in town right-of-way. Doing so could result in fines of $60 to $210 per offense.
