No fee policy for storm debris extended

The Town Board on Tuesday granted an extension to waive fees at the town recycling center for storm-related debris and/or construction debris related to the storm. The extension will be in effect until 5 p.m. Tuesday, November 27.

Those hauling debris to the center must still have it weighed on the scales, but won’t be charged.
