Weathersfield, Vt.

Did you stop by the Ascutney Volunteer Fire yard sale this past weekend? Holy cow did they have some stuff for sale. Did you also pick up your copy of the Weathersfield Directory? Lynn and her volunteer crew have done a great job listing all the services and businesses in town. They’ve also updated the website too. If your business didn’t get in the print edition, you can still get it listed on the online version, just visit: weathersfielddirectory.org.
Also there will be No Burn Permits until further notice, things are just too dry.



Weathersfield select board news: At their meeting on Oct. 2 it was announced that the next village revitalization workshop will be held on Oct. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Bow Baptist Church in Ascutney. Also discussed was a proposal by Chief Daniels to possibly provide police services to Reading, Baltimore and Cavendish. Daniels said he would provide cost details once he communicates with these towns. Select board member Boyer said that Baltimore had once approached Weathersfield to inquire about our providing police services to them. The Town currently has two full-time and four part-time officers who are on duty seven days a week. Contact Town Manager, Ed Morris, at 802-674-2626 townmanager@weathersfield.org with any questions.
