Road Construction – Log Road


 UPDATED: Log Road Paving starting on Wednesday, September 2nd.

PUBLIC NOTICE – Paving – Log Rd.

Paving is scheduled to start on Log Rd from Old Forge Road to just past house #356 Log Rd on Monday, August 31st.

Because of the width constraints on several sections of the road, we would like to close the road except for local traffic, trash collection, mail delivery and emergency vehicles during working hours (7 am to 3:30 pm). We will set up proper signage with detours & flaggers with the operation to safely direct vehicles by the work.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we make your roads better for your use.

Seth Lemoine, P.E.
Public Works Director

Touch a Truck Event at Old County Road School – Sunday, September 20th

Touch a Truck Event at Old County Road School. The playground was torn down in 2012 and rebuilt in two phases. The first phase in 2012 and the second phase in 2013.  The build was performed by volunteers from the school and community.  It truly was an amazing effort by all.  Phase III will be renovating the surrounding landscape for the children to enjoy during Physical Education and recess.

Smithfield Increases Recycling Rate in FY 2015

Smithfield Recycling CartGreat news, Smithfield Residents!

Due to our town’s increased recycling efforts, we have managed to reach a 31.84% MRF (Materials Recycling Facility) recycling rate in FY15!  This means that the Town has earned a tip fee rebate of $2 per ton of trash disposed for a total of $10,238.40!

Keep up the good work and help our Town reach the 35% MRF recycling rate goal to further increase our rebate!

Smithfield Welfare Department and Food Pantry

On behalf of the Smithfield Welfare Department and Food Pantry we would like to thank all the generous town residents, schools, businesses and organizations who continue to support the pantry and our programs during the summer months.

In June the pantry was fortunate enough to receive a very large food donation from our friends at Fidelity Investments (see photos below). The pantry recognizes all the time, effort and compassion that went into colleting and organizing such a large donation. Thank you all for thinking of the town pantry!
