So far, donations have reached $88.5 million, compared to $2.6 million for the same time period last year. The law enforcement personnel took part in the challenge last Friday, after a department award ceremony. While still warm and dry, Shepard gave out Officer of the Year awards to Officer Travis Trybulski and Officer Ben Hollwedel, criminal enforcement and motor vehicle enforcement awards to Trybulski, a DUI enforcement award to Officer Alex Tower and letters of commendation to Sgt. Mike Lavoie, Officer Josh Moore and Sgt. Bart Chamberlain. He also gave a teamwork award to LaTulippe and Cristalee McSweeney, reparative coordinator with the Community Justice Center. ‘There’s just so much good work done in this agency,’ Shepard said.

    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.
