Windsor Library Open House - Thursday, August 3rd at 6:30pm

WINDSOR LIBRARY OPEN HOUSE TO CELEBRATE RENOVATION PROJECT!

Thursday, August 3rd, at 6:30pm The Windsor Public Library is proud to reopen the doors of its rare and historic documents room following a long-awaited renovation of the space. This room along with the adjacent meeting room on the lower level of the Library have undergone a complete transformation, allowing patrons access to artifacts for personal research and additional space for group gatherings. The meeting room is also now equipped with state-of-the-art videoconferencing technology.

 

“We’re thrilled to make Windsor’s treasured historic newspapers available again inside a clean, warm, and well-lit environment,” says Tom Haushalter, president of the Library’s trustees. “We hope visitors will enjoy the new opportunity to explore our town’s fascinating past.”

 

All are welcome to come to the Library on Thursday, August 3rd, at 6:30pm, for an open house to celebrate the reopening of these rooms. Refreshments will be served, and Library staff will be on hand to share insights into the Library’s ongoing restoration vision.

 

“With a Library this vibrant, in a building this old, we face the twofold challenge of preservation and sustainability,” Haushalter says, “and reviving these rooms is an important step in our goal to make this space and its valuable resources accessible to everyone.”

We will have 6 roll offs on hand to accept material. We will also have volunteers on hand to confirm that items are acceptable. This 6 ½ minute Windsor on Air video provides details on what will and what will not be accepted. Please take note.

 

Hamm Gillett and I also filmed a Windsor on Air segment that covers all of the different ways property owners can get rid of everything from lightbulbs and paint to sofas and refrigerators. It also covers details on the July 8th collection. Over the next few months we will schedule additional collections for hazardous waste, electronic waste, and batteries.

 

Concurrent with this service the Town will be more engaged in enforcing regulations related to blight, floodway regulations (related to debris in the floodway) unregistered vehicles, junk and unsafe buildings. Our intent is to work with those who may be in violation, collaboratively, to address the issue. We hope this bulky waste collection will be helpful in that cause. If collaboration is not possible an expensive legal process (for both parties) can follow. The following are examples of existing ordinance:

 

TITLE 4 – UNSAFE BUILDINGS/UNSAFE STRUCTURES

Pursuant to the provisions of the Charter of the Town of Windsor, Section 28, and Title 24, Vermont Statutes Annotated, §§ 2291(13), (14), and (15) and §§ 3113 through 3119, and such other general enactments as may be material hereto, it is hereby ordained by the Selectboard of the Town of Windsor that the following Unsafe Buildings/Structures Ordinance is adopted for the Town of Windsor, Vermont.

CHAPTER 1 -- UNSAFE BUILDINGS/STRUCTURES

Section 101 – The Windsor Selectboard finds that there are and may be in the future certain buildings and/or structures which are dilapidated, or unsafe, or dangerous, or unsanitary, or a fire hazard, or a public nuisance, or a menace to the health, safety, and general welfare of the citizens of Windsor. Any building or structure which is found under the procedures set forth in Chapter, 3, Section 301 of this Title to be an unsafe building or structure as defined in Chapter 2, Section 201 of the Title shall be subject to repair or demolition as set forth in Chapter, 4, Section 401 of this Title.

Section 102 – It shall be unlawful for any person or persons or entity or entities to maintain, or own any interest in, or control, or lease any unsafe building in the Town of Windsor. After receipt of notice as set forth in Chapter 3, Section 301, of this Title, it shall be unlawful for any person or persons or entity or entities to continue to allow an unsafe building to remain in an unsafe condition.

Section 103 – Any person or persons or entity or entities maintaining, or owning any interest in, or controlling, or leasing any unsafe building or other structure shall repair or demolish said building or structure as hereinafter provided.

 

Title 13 of the Town of Windsor Ordinances. Trash Chapter 1 Illegal Dumping - Sec. 101. 

It is resolved that in the Town of Windsor, a person shall not throw, dump, deposit or cause to be thrown, dumped or deposited, bottles, glass, crockery, cans, scrap metal, plastic waste, household garbage, solid waste which is defined as junk, paper, garbage, and discarded motor vehicle or parts thereof, or refuse of any nature on any public lands, or on any private lands not their own, or within 300 feet of lands of others,  public or private, or on the shores or banks of public and private waters, or within the view of any state or town highway and road.

This Week in Windsor 6.19.17

 

This week it finally felt like summer is here. In addition to being the time for graduations, BBQ’s (Harpoon’s BBQ Festival is July 29/30th) and swimming (ropes, boards and guards are being installed this week at Kennedy Pond) it is also time for construction. This is what we have on the books so far:

  • Bids for Bridge Street repaving are being opened on June 30th

    • Grind and pave the street

    • Repair the small retaining walls on the corners of Main, Bridge, and Union

    • Replace the sidewalk on the south side of Bridge from the daycare center to Main St.

  • Pine/Court/Jacob St. construction to begin sometime in the teens of July

    • Grind and repave road

    • Replace water & sewer lines

    • Replace sidewalk

  • Landscaping on the slope behind the new wall and railing between the old firehouse and the diner.

Final design phase for the following:

  • Paving Cherry St. neighborhood/Everett Ln. Ruth Carney Dr./ Dewey Ave.

  • Repair slope on McClinton Ave.

 

We will get as far as money and schedules allow. Those items not completed this year will be first to be done next year along with additional paving.

 

Dodging potholes

The wet weather, additional mowing responsibilities and preparation for both the Memorial Day and Alumni ceremonies have our highway crew a little behind. They have been out grading and pothole patching this week but there is still a lot to do.  Road maintenance is top on the schedule and weather permitting we will be out grading and applying chloride to keep the dust down. In the mean time take it slow and easy.

 

Town hall is also getting painted. Much of the work has been completed there is still a little left to do.

 

Thanks to all who organized Alumni Weekend! Find a video of the parade here. It was a pleasure to provide the ride for the Grand Marshall Penny Armstrong, she was a very nice person and respected member of the WHS staff.

Car Wash to support the Comets – This Saturday
The Windsor Comets AAU basketball club has 5 girls teams and 5 boys teams. The teams are made up of players from Windsor and surrounding towns. All of these teams played in the AAU State Championship tournament in Burlington. The 4th grade girls and 6th grade boys won all of their games which qualified them to go to the Nationals in Pennsylvania!! This tournament runs June 29th through July 3.

In an effort to defray the costs (approximately $12,600) associated with this endeavor, the teams will be doing various fundraising events.

One of these events will be a car wash/bottle drive/ touch a truck this Saturday between the hours of 8:30 and 11:00 at the Fire Department on Union St. The car wash will be by donation, please give generously! As for the bottle/can drive, fill up those garbage bags with returnables and bring them to the FD during this event. The “Touch a Truck” will feature firetrucks, ambulances, a police cruiser, a RACE CAR, and possibly some construction equipment.

The girls team will also be doing a a layup competition on Monday June 19 at the Rec center to raise money. If you can’t make Saturday’s event please consider sponsoring one of these young ladies!

The Windsor Comets would like to thank you in advance for your support. If you know any of these players please take a minute to congratulate and wish them luck in the tournament. Should you have any questions concerning fundraising or donations please email WindsorCometsaau@gmail.com . Questions concerning the carwash please contact Chief Kevin McAllister @ 674-9043. THANK YOU!!

 

Bulky Waste Drop Off

I frequently hear that residents wish Windsor had a transfer station.  In round numbers surrounding towns spend between $300K and $400K per year on their transfer station with about half of the expense covered by fees and the other half supported by taxes. That does not include the facility or the land.  While a transfer station for Windsor is not currently in the plans we will be offering additional programs to assist with the removal of items from your home.

 

On July 8th 9am – noon we will be offering a bulky waste collection for items like old furniture, scrap wood, metal, and tires. This service will be free (paid for with Windsor tax dollars, so not exactly free) and open to Windsor residents only. Without proof of residency you will be turned away. We will have 6 roll offs on hand to accept material. We will also have volunteers on hand to confirm that items are acceptable.

 

Over the next few months we will schedule additional collections for hazardous waste, electronic waste, and batteries.

 

Hamm Gillett and I filmed a Windsor on Air segment yesterday that will begin airing shortly. The program covers all of the different way property owners can get rid of everything from lightbulbs and paint to sofas and refrigerators. It also covers details on the July 8th collection.

 

Concurrent with this service the Town will be more engaged in enforcing regulations related to blight, floodway regulations (related to debris in the floodway) unregistered vehicles and dangerous buildings. We hope this bulky waste collectionwill be helpful to those in violations of current regulations.

Bird Walk

Saturday June 17, 2017 from 7 to 9:30 AM, Mascoma Chapter of New Hampshire Audubon is to hold a bird walk on the grounds bordering the state correctional facility (prison farm) in Windsor, VT. This walk is free and open to the public. Bring binoculars if available, drinking water, and insect repellent. Participants should be prepared to walk as much as a mile over fairly level but unpaved and possibly damp terrain. We’ll be looking for breeding birds in the wide variety of habitats at this site where, according to eBird records, throughout the year 145 species have historically been found. Summer birds have historically included snipe, cuckoos, kestrels, a variety of flycatchers, a number of warbler species including Blue-winged Warbler, towhees, field sparrows, and bobolinks. This bird walk will not be held in the unfortunate case of steady, heavy rain or thundershowers. Te walk will be starting from the parking area next to the red building on the east side of Marton Road just to the south of the intersection with Pond Road

Summer birds have historically included snipe, cuckoos, kestrels, a variety of flycatchers, a number of warbler species including Blue-winged Warbler, towhees, field sparrows, and bobolinks. This bird walk will not be held in the unfortunate case of steady, heavy rain or thundershowers.

Fiscal 2018 Municipal Budget Survey Results

This link provides the complete set of responses to the FY 2018 town budget survey.  We had 232 responses which is the most ever. Last year we had 175 two years ago 217.  The survey was available for about 5 weeks starting on Election Day ( 50 hard copy responses were collected at the poll and entered into the electronic version).  This is not meant to be scientific, it is just one more tool in the budget process.  The program does prevent more than one response to be entered from a computer, but one person could use multiple devises to respond multiple times. While it was asked that only Windsor residents respond there is no way of knowing if out of towners filled out surveys.

This Week in Windsor 10.21.16

Last week my wife Kathy and I were fortunate to be able to participate in a very interesting event, King Arthur Flour’s “Bake For Good”. King Arthur, working with the Cheese Board offered a baking class at Artisan’s Park with many of the park employees attending. We all learned a simple bread recipe as well as some useful baking tips. After the class we were sent on our way with all the things necessary to bake two loaves of bread. Over the weekend we did the baking and the results were donated to the Windsor food shelf….38 loaves in all!

Important! County Rd. is closed to through traffic but should be open this afternoon, weather dependent.

The second culvert is expected to be replaced during the second week of November and will require a road closure of 4 to 5 days.
