No School/Parking Ban: Because of the snow, school has been cancelled and there’s a parking ban in effect until further notice. You’ll find all storm-related information here.

Christmas Tree curbside collection: The town will collect your tree and recycle it, but not until the weeks of Jan. 6-10 and Jan. 13-17. Just make sure your tree is bare – no ornaments, tinsel, metal or wires – and NOT in a plastic bag. If you’ve used a bag to get your tree out of your house neatly, just make sure to pull it off. Any questions, please call the Department of Public Works at 886-8620/886-8621

Recycle pick up and a New Year’s delay: Because of the New Year’s Day holiday, trash and recycle pickup are delayed one day. For more information, check out the town’s DPW website here.

EG Rec winter-spring sign ups are under way: You can set up an account and sign up online or by written application now. Here’s more information.
