  • Public Informational PRESENTATION from February 18, 2016.
  • View the FHWA Roundabout educational video which describes the safety of modern roundabouts vs signalized intersections. The Town - via the Transportation Plan - is proposing this solution at the Still River Dr/ Pickett District Rd intersection and has received a grant to cover the entire cost of construction.  Please look for Public Informational Meetings seeking your input over the next few months.

SHARE THE ROAD - REMINDER! Now that the weather is finally(!) getting better we would like to remind everyone to SHARE THE ROAD! It's the LAW-Share the Road. "Sharrows" were added along Grove Street and Housatonic Avenue.

The Public Works Office accepts major credit cards for Recycling Center transactions only. Residents may now purchase a punch card with a debit/credit card. This is the first step in modernizing our system. In the future, the Recycling Center will also be able to accept this form of payment. Please be patient as the office staff works out all the kinks. As with most transactions, please be advised that there is a 2% processing fee for this service, which will be charged as a part of your transaction.


Everyday we have multiple crews out in different parts of town (For reference, the Town owns 212 miles of road(~186 miles of paved road and ~27 miles of gravel) consisting of ~370 town roads, 34 bridges over 20 feet in length, 24 bridges under 20 feet in length, and 2 over railroad tracks).
