LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Roof fund-raising a success

The Williston area is such a generous community! The art sale held two weeks ago raised $1,500—some buyers saw the notice in the Observer (“Art sale fundrasier,” Sept. 19) and one person made an anonymous gift. When added to other financial donations, the funding for roof repairs was reached. The single mom, supporting three while fighting cancer, just called to say the roof was done. “I’m speechless. I’ve been crying all day.” She added that, as the two roofers pounded nails at their own speed, her daughter had shouted up, “Get the rhythm, boys! Get the rhythm.”

Thank you so much for answering the need.

    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.
