FOR WINTERIZATION:

As mentioned yesterday, the National Guard and State police approved access to contractors for the purpose of winterization.  This will begin on Friday and they must adhere to the rules set forth below:

* Entry will be allowed from 8-3 on the same day that residents are allowed entry (FOR TOMORROW IT IS SECTION 1)

* If a resident is not going to accompany their contractor, they need to supply a letter or a print out of an e-mail authorizing the contractor to enter.

* Contractors entering the Southern Part of town (South of Herbert Street) should check-in at the new County Park at the base of the bridge on the Brick side.  Contractors for the North, should meet at Sacred Heart Church.

* Contractors can use their own vehicle (ONLY ONE VEHICLE PER HOUSE), but they should park in the resident’s driveway or the nearest possible driveway.  If they park on any public street, they will be towed and denied future access.

* Once contractors have cleared the checkpoint, they will not be allowed to go back and forth.  If they have multiple clients, they need to supply a list of those clients at the checkpoint.  If they are found at any address other than that for which they registered, they will be escorted from town and denied future access.

PLEASE REMEMBER: THE WINTERIZATION SYSTEM IS A TRIAL TO ALLOW GREATER ACCESS IN THE NEAR FUTURE.  IF IT DOES NOT WORK, FUTURE ACCESS MAY BE SEVERELY COMPROMISED.  PLEASE DO YOUR PART TO MAKE IT WORK.

Rebuilding fact for the day: Rock called “Riprap” is being used to shore up areas on the bay.  Riprap works by absorbing and deflecting the energy of waves before they reach the defended structure. The size and mass of the riprap material absorbs the impact energy of waves, while the gaps between the rocks trap and slow the flow of water, lessening its ability to erode soil or structures on the coast. The mass of riprap also provides protection against impact damage by ice or debris, which is particularly desirable for bridge supports and pilings.
