From the Desk of Tim Curtis, Madison Town Manager:
I would like to thank all the crews (Highway, MEW, Fire & Rescue) who have been working to move downed trees today. As of early this afternoon there is still a lot of work to be done.
The brush site at the end of Ash Street will be open Tuesday and Wednesday from 7am to 4pm to take branches. In town the Highway Dept will ONLY pick up LEAVES with the vacuum so if you leave branches and brush by the end of the curb Highway will not be able to pick it up.*
There is a High School Community Service Day scheduled for 9-12 on Wednesday this week – keep that in mind if people need help cleaning up.
*The main purpose for vacuuming up leaves in the fall is to keep the storm drains clear. These leaves are composted at the brush site and available for anyone to use for compost. Highway will make regular sweeps around town until snow begins.
Thank you – Tim

Maine needs something to create Industry clearly. I don’t see a lot other renewable resources of business that generate lots of income happening compared to the marijuana scale potential. Kill heroin and let the real medicine prosper and heal the People of an Agricultural State we call Home, Maine.
