Road Updates :
Currently there is a procedure in place which requires a permit to travel over a posted roadway if the vehicle is registered for a gross weight of more than 23,000 pounds unless otherwise posted . There are exemptions which include, but are not limited, to school buses, emergency vehicles, heating fuel trucks, and solid waste trucks. The permit application and $75 application fee can be filed with the Code Enforcement Officer along with a $10,000 insurance bond.
The Selectmen , along with the Road Commissioner and CEO, have been working to amend the procedure for traveling over posted roads and new standards are expected to be in place prior to the spring "mud season".
