FIRST SELECTMAN’S CORNER

 

The Tropical Storm ISAIS has blown thru and caused havoc with trees and power lines.  We had pretty good gusts of wind up to 65 MPH so it isn’t a surprise that some trees fell over.

Power was restored to 95% of Bozrah by the wonderful crews from BL&P with help from Asplundh and our Town crew.   Today the BL&P crews are out restoring the remainder of its customers which count about 300 in the Leonard Bridge area (Lebanon).  Expect some periodic power loss when they are replacing transformers that are weak or damaged.  All power should be restored today.

There is a lot of debris on the road and the town crew is out chipping the larger stuff and stacking large wood on the side of the road.  Every bit helps, so if you have a leaf blower and want to clear some leaves and debris off the road please chip in and we will get thru this.

Everyone will have sticks and debris that they want to get rid of.  Instead of taking it to the dump consider piling it up at the end of your driveway and the town crew will come along and chip it up.  Please stack it ends together so that it can be picked up easily with the grapple.

FIRST SELECTMAN’S CORNER

 

The Tropical Storm ISAIS has blown thru and caused havoc with trees and power lines.  We had pretty good gusts of wind up to 65 MPH, so it isn’t a surprise that some trees fell over.

Power was restored north of Bozrah Street Extension by opening the recloser.  Today the BL&P crews are out patrolling the power lines from Bishop Road to Bozrah Street Extension to look for trees touching the power lines.  These should be cleared by this afternoon or early tonight and the power restored.

South of Bishop Road and the Route 82 business district would be next on the list and should be cleared by tomorrow morning with power restoration after that.

Scott Hill road is affected pretty badly, there was a tree that impacted the power lines and parted a telephone/cable line.

There will be some customers cut off longer due to damage to the lines or poles, but they are working diligently to repair the damage.

There is a lot of debris on the road and the town crew is out chipping the larger stuff and stacking large wood on the side of the road.  Every bit helps, so if you have a leaf blower and want to clear some leaves and debris off the road please chip in and we will get thru this.

Health and Safety

Dear Parents:

 

The health and safety of our campers and staff remain our highest priority.  Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensue we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible.  We are:

 

  • Taking daily temperatures upon arrival.  If 100o or higher the child will not be allowed to attend that day.

 

  • Intensifying cleaning and disinfection practices within our facilities and premises by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (playground equipment and door handles), cleaning and disinfecting objects if they are shared (e.g., art supplies, sports equipment, toys, and games), while ensuring safe and correct use and storage of disinfectants.

 

  • The camp is limited to 14 campers by State regulation.  Spacing them out by prioritizing outdoor activities and putting markers to indicate 6 feet of distance will also be implemented.

 

  • Limiting the number of items that are shared or touched between campers and staff by providing individual supplies to each camper, keeping a camper’s belongings separate from others and in individually labeled containers, cubbies, or areas, and using disposable utensils and.

 

  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices by teaching campers the importance of washing their hands with soap and with hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol when they do not have easy access to soap and water, encouraging children to cover their coughs and sneezes with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow, and posting signs about these healthy habits around the camp facility.

 

  • Staff will wear a cloth face covering.

 

  • If a child does get sick at camp, we have identified an area where they can rest, be watched after, and safely isolated from others.  We will communicate with parents or caretakers directly.

 

  • Camp activities will be outside, however, whenever the weather is unfavorable (temperatures of 90o+ or inclement weather) activities will revert to inside where masks/social distancing will be put into effect.

 

We ask that you help us protect the health of campers this summer.  Anyone who is sick or was sick with COVID-19 or recently in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, including staff, campers, and families, should not come to camp.  Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell. 

 

If you have a specific question about  this plan or COVID-19, please contact firstselectman@bozrahct.org for information.  You can also find more information about COVID-19 at www.cdcgov/coronavirus or on CDC’s website for youth and summer camps (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/summer-camp.html).

TOWN HALL PUBLIC ACCESS OPENING  

 

The Town of Bozrah has been in a declared state of emergency since March 20, 2020.  The Town hall was closed to the public and access to the offices and services were limited to appointments only.  With the state government phasing in reopening for business we will do the same, but with restrictions on how many people are allowed in and screening of the individuals entering.

 

  • The town hall doors will remain locked, for access you must ring the bell and state whom you would like to see.

  • No one without a mask will be allowed in the town hall.  (Employees don’t generally wear masks as it is a limited group)

  • Upon entering your temperature will be taken and you will be asked to sanitize your hands.

  • If you are going to look thru the deeds, vital records, or maps in the vault you will be required to wear gloves, this includes the use of the computer outside the town clerk’s office.

  • The tax collector and town clerk have plexiglass shields at their desk to prevent spray from contaminating the area.

  • Only one person will be allowed at one time to conduct business with each individual office, so if there is a title search in progress you will have to wait outside.

  • If you want to see the assessor, the process is the same, but your business will be conducted with the bottom half of the door closed observing proper distance.

 

These rules will stay in place until the state of emergency is lifted for the state and the town.
