Message for Residents of the Wallingford Fire District #1: The Prudential Committee wants to let you know that we wish to offer a voluntary service to send you all bills by email. Not only will this save paper, postage, reduce land fill waste and associated resources, it will also offer increase security as only you will see your bill. No need to tear your bill into tiny pieces or shred your bill for secure recycling! Simply send the office an email firstname.lastname@example.org and say you’d like to join! In addition, the clerk/ treasurer will send out reminders to all participants before the due date to remind anybody who may have forgotten the due date, misplaced their printed bill or deleted the original email. All you need to do is email or call the office (802-446-2964) and Maureen will send you another email with your bill attached. Again, this is totally a voluntary service.
