Water restriction

Town Manager, Tony Schiavi, announced a Stage II water restriction due to lower than normal water levels in the reservoir. At this time of year, a Stage II restriction is mostly about public awareness since most if not all irrigation systems are off-line for the winter. The community will be kept well informed through media, electronic signs and the town's website as the situation progresses.

MYECO

My ECO is launching an initiative beginning September, 2013, supported by Shaw's Supermarkets to increase reusable bags at checkout. Shaw's will provide an incentive and reward in the form of donations to local schools and charities when customers shop with their own bags. By simply scanning a code at checkout, the customer tracks reuse and banks the donation on behalf of their school. If 100 families sign up to support their school and shop each week at Shaw's, they can raise over $3,000, just by shopping with their own bags. In addition, they would keep 100,000 single use bags out of landfills. Shoppers can sign up for free at www.getmyeco.com. Register your school or charity at http://www.getmyeco.com/newPartnerRegistration.action. Contact Kristen Brown form MYECO at kristen@getmyeco.com or 973-310-2630
