B-19 (“Truchon Bridge”) VTrans Fact Sheet – East River Road Closing Summer 2015 – 50 Days

B-19 VTrans Fact Sheet

PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING – 05.26.15 re: TH 1 Bridge 19 “Truchon Bridge” EAST RIVER ROAD CLOSING

“Truchon Bridge” on East River Road will be replaced this summer. East River Road will be totally closed to through traffic for a single period of up to 50 days between  mid-June and late August. The estimated start of full closure is July 2. By closing the road entirely, the construction schedule is shortened substantially and the Town’s share of the nearly $2.4 million project, funded by property taxes, is reduced by 50%. This public Information meeting will be an opportunity  to learn and to ask questions about the schedule and plans.

 

Mt. Abraham School Budget Defeated

The Mt. Abraham Union High/Middle School budget vote on April 14th, failed by a count of 755 NO and 485 YES.  The  ballots are co-mingled from all the five towns, so we do not have individual counts for each town.  Thank you to everyone who turned out to vote.   Lincoln’s participation was the highest percentage (22%) of the 5-towns with 226 out of 1,026 voters weighing in.  Pay close attention for a warning to re-vote again soon.  If you know you will be away in the next few weeks and want to submit an absentee ballot request to your town clerk, I can hold it for immediate processing on the day I receive new ballots.  Please e-mail or call, to make a request.

Green Up Day Coordinator Needed

greenupbannerFor the past few years, Heather Richards has volunteered to be the Green Up Day Coordinator for Lincoln. Heather’s family is looking forward to ways of bringing some healing to their hearts. Heather and Shawn’s young children are hoping that Green Up Day will still be a great event, and they look forward to being a part of it. Since Heather has recently passed away, we are looking for a volunteer to take over the role of Coordinator.

Our beautiful surroundings deserve some annual attention, as we welcome the spring weather on the first Saturday in May. If anyone is willing to step up and take charge of this annual event, please contact me at the Town Office. The job involves organizing trash haulers, assigning routes for clean up crews, a raffle, a picnic, and any other aspects you would like to bring to this community event. One thing’s for sure. You won’t have to work too hard to find volunteers for roadside clean up. People always show up.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to get involved.
Sally Ober, Lincoln Town Clerk
