By All Posts, Announcements

From Robert Viscardi, Highway Superintendent:

2. We are also accepting brush (i.e., limbs and Christmas trees; no stumps) in the concrete bin in front of the highway garage located at 3623 Lake Road. The bin is located on the N side of the wooden salt barn and is marked appropriately. Please make sure the brush is placed INSIDE the bin. The bin will be open immediately until January 9th.

Wind Storm Update:

By All Posts

Good Morning Clarkson — HWY Superintendent Bob Viscardi and his crew have worked through the night and with sunrise he was better able to assess the damage in the Town. Lots of trees and limbs are down, so as you begin clean up, cut them into six foot lengths and place parallel to the road. HWY will make a pass through the Town starting the week of Monday, December 20.

He also shared that a tree took down a utility pole on Gilmore Road and that is the cause of most of the remaining power outages. We are waiting for National Grid for the tree removal and restoration of power. This may take some time to accomplish.In true Clarkson fashion we’ve already heard stories of neighbors helping neighbors.

Thank you and please stay safe!
