Marlborough – Residents who have recently moved to Marlborough and those who have lived there for many years all need to know trash collection scheduling, parking ban information, snow and ice removal policies, and other services provided by the Department of Public Works (DPW). A guide for this information and an outline of many projects under way and those planned to be implemented was recently sent to residents.
Also included was a message from Mayor Arthur Vigeant regarding water and sewer rates.
“Once again, water and sewer rates will remain unchanged,” he said. “We have been able to hold rates steady for a couple of years and we will evaluate our revenues closely before recommending any changes to rates next year.”
Vigeant also stressed that he is investing taxpayer dollars into rebuilding critical infrastructure – roads, water, sewer and parks.
“This year we expect another busy construction season,” he stated. “Our biggest project, funded by federal transportation funds, is a total rebuild of Maple Street. We will do our best to mitigate any travel issues, but drivers should plan for regular delays on Maple Street throughout the project.”
The city Facebook page contains a detailed map of all projects the DPW is working on this summer.
