STANNARD – Ben Hewitt said he’d had an ARPA meeting earlier that day. The town is all caught up on paperwork and the ARPA funds, which the town already has received, can be used for general funds expenses if desired.

Select board members learned at their regular May 15 meeting that Vermont’s Agency of Transportation has advised the town that grant compliance for the temporary bridge on the Stannard Mountain Road is almost complete and funds should come to the town soon. That bridge was damaged in the flood of early June 2024.

Katy Knuth reported that the FEMA flood documentation is all submitted.

Select Board Chair Jan Lewandoski gave Treasurer Cindee Wheeler a check for $500 for two cemetery plots in the Stannard Cemetery from Darrald Bartlett of Greensboro Bend.

Recent grader repairs cost a total of approx. $13,000; somewhat less than were feared.
