Clean Up Continues From October Snowstorm

Director of Public Works Clem Langlois, Jr. said that the town has set up open bids for brush pick up and hanging branch removals.

It may be weeks after the , but Tolland is still working on cleaning up the mess.

There are several deadlines and decisions still to be made to get Tolland back to its pre-storm state, according to Public Works Director Clem Langlois, Jr.

Langlois said that an open bid has gone out for Tolland's road-side brush pick up, and that another bid to remove the remaining hanging branches in town will go out later in the month. He reminds Tolland residents that town workers will not be picking up curb-side debris.

Langlois said that Tolland residents have until December 19 to drop off debris at .

The debris pile at Cross Farms is impressively big at the moment, but Langlois said that he is going to wait to chip the pile until all the town's clean up is complete to save costs. He said that it's possible that the chips may be sold or could be donated to residents.

Langlois said he is filing paperwork with FEMA to receive some financial reimbursement for the extensive clean up.

Although there is still much work to be done, Langlois added that the town's was immensely helpful and that he is grateful for all of the residents who turned up to lend a hand.

"A big thank you to every one," he said of the volunteers. "It shows how a small community can pull their efforts together in a time of need."
