I just got this information from Selectman Bill Boland:
PUBLIC INFORMATION RELEASE—Southborough Board of Selectmen and Town Administrator Jean Kitchen, Public Information Officer Monday August 29, 2011 noon
The Town of Southborough is still in a recovery mode dealing with the aftermath and effects of Hurricane Irene. First and foremost, at this point we ask that you only call 911 in the event of emergency. For other calls and information please call 508-485-2121.
As of noon most of the Town is still without power. National Grid has several crews in town and the surrounding area attempting to restore power as soon as possible. Due to the large number of problem areas, they are not able to give us an estimate as to when power will be restored at this time. Please be aware as well, that many current residential telephones require electricity in order to operate.
At this point the only road closure is Pine Hill Road at number 78. Bridge Street is also closed for paving.
Effective at 12:00 noon the Town’s shelter will be moved to Trottier Middle School on Parkerville Rd. and will no longer be located at Woodward School.
Due to a structural fire at the Boland Pumping Station the Selectman have called for a immediate mandatory outside watering ban until Wednesday August 31 at 5:00 PM.
The DPW has opened access to the brush disposal area at the Transfer Station. Access to the disposal area is from the lower DPW area. The gate to the Transfer Station is not open. The transfer station will open on Wednesday if power is restored. Only brush may be disposed of in this area—please no stumps, logs or trash.
While it is difficult to communicate without power, we are attempting to release information through the Town’s website and two local websites mysouthborough.com and southboroughnews.com. Both of these sites may also be providing information through Twitter or Facebook. We understand it is difficult to view websites without electricity but many residents may have the ability through work or handheld devices.
You may call Massachusetts 211 to see if there is current information from Southborough.
We will physically post information and releases at The Town House, 17 Common Street and at Station 2 on Harrington Court in Southville.
More information will be released as available.
