Low water pressure: Please call the Town Hall if you experience low water pressure so that we may send Public Works out to check on it and try to determine the reason.
Sewer Problem: What kind of problem are you experiencing? Is it a back up in the house, in the street, or a bad odor outside. If it is backing up in your house and it is an upstairs bathroom, it is usually a homeowner problem and a plumber needs to be called. If it is a problem other than that, please call the Town Hall and we will send Public Works out to check the sewer main.
Signs: If there is a Town sign down or damaged please call the Town Hall and we will send Public Works out to check it out.
Property complaints: If you are experiencing problems with your neighbors property or if you suspect a zoning violation, please call the Town Hall and we will send the Code Enforcement Officer to check out the problem and take the appropriate action.
Trash: If the Trash Contractor has missed your house for household trash or recycling, please call the Town Hall and we will notify the Trash Contractor to take care of the problem. Remember -- all trash has to be at the curb in containers with lids. The trash company cannot come on private property to retrieve your trash. Also, if there are grass clippings out with the regular trash, the contractor will not pick this up.
Starting in 2012, there will be a second trash pick-up from Memorial Day through Labor Day (unlike previous years when the second trash pick-up extended through October). Your normal recycle day (see recycling schedule) will also become a regular trash pick-up day during those months.
When a holiday falls during the work week your trash will be picked up on the next day after your scheduled pickup.

Safety Tips from the Sheriff's Office (extracted from the Town's Newsletter)
Criminals are always looking for an opportunity to make an easy score. To protect yourself and your valuables, the sheriffís office would like to recommend the following safety tips:
Shop during the daytime hours whenever possible. When shopping at night, park in well lit areas near your destination.
When possible, donít shop alone. Take a friend or relative along. It may take a bit longer, but there is safety in numbers.
Always lock your car and roll up your windows, even if you will ďonly be gone for a minute.Ē A minute is all a thief needs to separate you from your valuables. If you have an alarm, utilize it.
Lock your purchases in your trunk. Never leave them in plain sight on the seats or the floorboard. If you donít have a trunk, cover them with a blanket or something similar.
Avoid carrying large amounts of cash and donít advertise large amounts of cash in public. You never know who may be watching. Use credit and debit cards when possible.
If you use an ATM at the mall, be aware of who may be around you. Try not to make large cash withdrawals. The malls are usually crowded and this makes it easy for a criminal to catch you off guard and grab your cash.
Always choose a bank ATM in visible, well lit areas. If you notice anyone suspicious approaching, cancel your transaction and leave.
Never leave your purse in a shopping cart. Make sure it is always zipped or snapped shut. When dining out, never hang your purse on your chair. Keep it in your lap or on the floor in front of you.
Avoid carrying too many packages that may make you a target. Itís better to make regular trips to the car to drop off packages while shopping.
Do not get into your car if you are followed or are suspicious of anyone hanging around your vehicle. Instead, return to the mall or store and ask security for
Save your most expensive purchases for the end of your shopping trip.
Watch for people who may bump into you or distract you in some other way. They may be setting you up for pick-pocketing.
When leaving the mall, donít talk on your cell phone. Be aware of whatís going on around you. Also, have your keys ready in your hand. Lots of packages and fumbling through your purse or pockets for your keys makes you an easy target.
Be alert and aware of strangers who may approach you for whatever reason. Following these simple rules will help keep you from becoming a crime victim. If you see any suspicious activity, immediately report it to store security or the local police.
