Over the last week or so, Rutland County Sheriff Dept has handled several burglary complaints targeting businesses and job trailers. The target of choice for this group is copper and power tools. There are persons of interest in these cases and Deputies are actively working the cases to hopefully make arrests in these cases. Please make sure to spread the word within your towns in order to make sure things are locked up. If you have job trailers etc. It might not be a bad idea to get some kind of surveillance on them in the form of trail cameras. I just wanted to make towns aware of the recent cases in order to take proactive measures. We believe the same suspects are responsible for the recent three cases in Proctor and Clarendon. In one of those cases a vehicle was taken and later recovered. Lt. James Bennick RC5 Rutland County Sheriff’s Department 88 Grove Street (Po Box 303) Rutland, VT 05701 Cell: 802-342-0067 Dispatch: 802-775-8002 Email: james.bennick@vermont.gov

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) included $350 billion in pandemic-related aid for state and local governments. Vermont will receive more than $1.25 billion of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funding from ARPA. While the Legislature and the Governor will determine how more than $1 billion of that funding will be spent, Congress directed nearly $200 million of that funding directly to Vermont’s cities, towns, and villages. City Councils and Select Boards will have discretion over how to spend their allocations.

The Town of Wallingford will be receiving $204,000 over two years. To gather input from residents, the Wallingford Selectboard has scheduled a public forum on Wednesday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Wallingford Town Hall. Please attend to share your input or email townadmin@wallingfordvt.com with suggestions.

ARPA includes four broad criteria outlining eligible uses:

  • To respond to the public health emergency or its negative economic impacts, including assistance to households, small businesses, and nonprofits, or aid to impacted industries such as tourism, travel, and hospitality;
  • To respond to workers performing essential work during the COVID-19 public health emergency by providing premium pay to eligible workers;
  • For the provision of government services to the extent of the reduction in revenue due to the COVID–19 public health emergency relative to revenues collected in the most recent full fiscal year prior to the emergency; and
  • To make necessary investments in water, sewer, or broadband infrastructure.

Keep in mind that parking near the Recreation Area is very limited: please park as far away as you can handle (or walk /bike from home) so that people with limited mobility can park close by.

And pallets are still popping up around town! We are delaying the judging on those and will let you know the results on the 7th. Thank you to all the people who have painted/decorated a pallet and made our streets more fun to travel through.

The day will be organized around two main events: A return of last year’s Pallet Project A musical extravaganza culminating with a fireworks show at the ballfield! Pallets If you got your pallet on last year, feel free to either display last year’s great work or make a new one. If you didn’t have a chance to get your pallet on, but wanted to, this is your lucky year! We still have a few pallets at the town garage for the take’n. All you need to do is paint ‘em, decorate ‘em, and display ‘em. When you finish your work of art, contact wallingfordday@gmail.com by July 7th to get your name on the map. Maps can be found at either the Gilbert Hart Library or the Town Hall in the week running up to Wallingford Day. Musical Extravaganza Make your way to the ball field on 7/17 for an afternoon/evening of musical variety. Bring a picnic supper and find your spot on the field for a safe and entertaining evening to celebrate Wallingford! Bring a picnic dinner and a blanket. There may be food vendors, please keep an eye on Front Porch Forum and the Wallingford Day Facebook page for updates. • 5 PM Phil Henry & fiddler Jimmy Kalb • 6 PM Drum Journeys of Earth • 7 PM Burlington Taiko • 9 PM Fireworks If you are going to take advantage of traffic and passers by with a tag sale, you will want to be sure to wrap it up in time to come enjoy the music. Parking If you are able, please park away from the ballfield (Waldo Lane, School Street, Railroad Street, etc.) and walk in as this will reserve the ballfield parking lot and Meadow Street for folks who may have difficulty walking. This will also make it much easier and safer when it’s time to leave after dark.
