NORTH SMITHFIELD DPW FACILITIES-
STORM CLEANUP

 

Good afternoon,

 

The tree damage from the weekend storm has obviously created a large volume of material that must be disposed of.  Our Department of Public Works is planning to help with that by making a dumpster available at the DPW facility.  The yard is open to receive that material today and tomorrow for anyone who wants to beat the snow that will be hitting us Wednesday and Thursday.  

 

Since the focus of DPW work on Wednesday must be to be ready for the snowstorm, we ask that no such material be brought there on Wednesday or Thursday.  DPW will continue to receive material on Friday and Saturday.  If additional dates seem necessary, we will make an appropriate announcement.

 

Also, though our DPW personnel will not enter any private property to remove trees, or even to collect branches, they are prepared to collect material at the curb line of your home.  You will be making it easy for us to handle your branches if you leave them in long lengths so they can be chipped.  Please contact DPW at 767-2200 extension 348 to make them aware that you have material to pick up.

 

Again, the snowstorm that is forecast for Wednesday into Thursday will force our focus on keeping roads open, so we will appreciate your understanding of the schedule detailed above.  Safety in the DPW yard is paramount.

A statue of a Confederate soldier at a North Carolina college is down after it was knocked over by protesters tonight. A group of around 250 protestors marched to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill calling for the immediate removal of the monument, called Silent Sam. The crowd started cheering and throwing dirt on it after some people pulled it down using rope.       Court documents are revealing that a Colorado man confessed to strangling his wife, but he claims she killed their two daughters. Chris Watts told police he went into a rage and killed his wife Shanann after he saw her strangling one of their daughters. According to Watts, the other daughter had already been murdered. Chris Watts is being charged with first-degree murder charges over the deaths.        President Trump is worried that anything he tells the Special Counsel in the Russia investigation could be made to look like he's lying. In an interview with Reuters, Trump said he's concerned that if he's interviewed under oath, his words will be compared with testimony from others. He expressed fear that any difference would be used to bring perjury charges.        Actress Rose McGowan is "heartbroken" after learning a fellow member of the #MeTooMovement allegedly paid off an actor who accused her of sexual assault when he was 17. In a tweet, McGowan said their "commonality is the shared pain of being assaulted by Harvey Weinstein." McGowan added that while her heart is broken, she will continue to work on behalf of victims everywhere.        It's official, the Eagles have the best-selling album of all time. The Recording Industry Association of America reports Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 album overtook Michael Jackson's Thriller album to claim the top spot. The Eagles' album was certified at 38-times platinum while Jackson's album was certified at 33-times platinum.
