Michele Morris of the Chittenden Solid Waste District demonstrates one of the entries in the Creative ReUse Showcase, which encourages students to use discarded items in inventive ways. ‘Trash-o-Guitar’ was made by Champlain Valley Union High School sophomore Garrett Brown with a body molded from household trash and a real guitar’s neck and pickups. See story below.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
