At a recent Marketing meeting at the Community Center, building a public septic system was presented as a solution for residents along 390 and 447 who don't have sufficient space for a sand mound.  It remains to be seen whether it is better to build smaller, separate systems, or combine them all into one.  Since there are plenty of slopes and natural features in this area, we could build the whole system to be gravity fed. 

Any interested parties are encouraged to participate.  Investing in our local infrastructure is a great way to generate economic growth.  We are also discussing rebuilding the playhouse, beautifying town, starting a small community school for young children, promoting Barrett Parks and Recreation, and more. 

 

The Department of Environmental Protection issued a notice of violation to the Weiler Corporation for polluting a pond on its property.

Weiler is in the process of remediating the spill.

Weiler Corp. first noticed a sheen on the pond in front of the facility and tried to determine what the source of the substance was, according to Weiler President and CEO Chris Weiler. They learned of the source on Feb. 3.

“It was likely some underground storage tanks that are used to heat and cool the building,” he said.
