Chipper Program A Success!
August 13, 2021
Thank you to our community members who put in an estimated 2316 hours of labor to deliver over 805 loads of burnable material to our chipping program, reducing the amount of dangerous fuel around our homes.
Of the 197 households who participated this year, 80 were doing so for the first time. This is collectively a huge effort on your part to make our town more resilient and safer for all of us.
