Cooling Center Open through Friday July 6, 2018

 

EASTON — Chief Kevin Partridge would like to announce that a cooling center will be opened in Easton this afternoon to serve residents during the current heat wave.

The cooling center will be at Frothingham Memorial Hall, 15 Barrows St., from 4-8 p.m. today. It will remain open until Friday, July 6, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. If additional days are needed an announcement will be made.

Temperatures are expected to reach into the low 90s today and into Thursday in Easton, according to the National Weather Service. Humidity levels are also expected to be high throughout the week.

“Anyone who needs to cool down is welcome to come to the center,” said Chief Partridge, who is also the director of the town’s emergency management agency. “The high temperatures and humidity levels we have experienced over the weekend are expected to continue throughout the week. We ask anyone that may have elderly or disabled neighbors to please check up on them and make sure they are safe and cool.”

Town officials will also be reaching out to the residents of Easton’s Housing Authority to provide assistance if they need it.

The American Red Cross recommends the following in order to stay safe in the heat:

  • Never leave children or pets alone in enclosed vehicles.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids.
  • Avoid extreme temperature changes.
  • Wear lightweight, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing. Avoid dark colors that absorb the sun’s rays.
  • Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.
  • Postpone outdoor games and activities and take frequent breaks if working outdoors.
  • Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat. Don’t forget to monitor your pets to ensure they are not suffering from the heat.
  • If you do not have air conditioning, you should choose places to go to for relief from the heat during the warmest part of the day (libraries, theaters, malls, etc.).

Those exposed to high heat for a prolonged amount of time can fall victim to heat exhaustion or life-threatening heat stroke.

Public Meeting to Discuss Draft Housing Production Plan - October 18

The Affordable Housing Trust is holding a public meeting to discuss Easton’s draft Housing Production Plan on Tuesday October 18th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at Frothingham Hall – 15 Barrows Street in downtown North Easton.  The State requires that towns have a current Housing Production Plan to be certified as being in compliance with Massachusetts’ Comprehensive Permit Law and thus have “safe harbor” from unsolicited Chapter 40B developments.  As long as Easton remains certified as being in compliance with the law, the Town has the perpetual ability to ensure future housing proposals comply with local zoning and can turn away development proposals that do not.  The draft plan is available for review on the Town website.  After feedback from the public meeting, the plan will be presented to the Planning Board in November and the Board of Selectmen in December and then submitted to the State for final approval in January of 2017. A COPY OF THE DRAFT PRODUCTION PLAN IS AVAILABLE HERE.

Town of Easton Completes Final Phase of LED Streetlight Conversion Project


The Town of Easton is proud to announce that the final phase of its streetlight conversion project has been completed and that all Town owned lights in Easton are now fitted with energy efficient LED bulbs. The upgrade of the last 271 of 1442 Town owned streetlights represents the conclusion of a process beginning in 2013, when the Town purchased 98 percent of all streetlights in Easton from National Grid. Owning these lights rather than leasing them from National Grid saves the Town over $100,000 each year in perpetuity. Converting to LED lights has reduced the Town’s annual energy consumption by 328,058 kWh, which saves approximately $57,000 each year. Taken together, the purchase and conversion of these streetlights will save the Town over $160,000 annually. Read More

Easton Police Department Participating in 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back

 
On September 26th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Police Department on Lothrop Street, the EPD will take part in the 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Program. The National Prescription Drug Take-Back addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Many Americans are not aware that medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.

Notice from National Grid: Beware of Scams


From National Grid: "During this holiday season National Grid and local police departments received an increasing number of calls from customers being targeted by billing scam artists and impersonators trying to gain access to account information and entry to National Grid customers’ homes. The bill scams mirror reports received by utility companies throughout the country where the scammers are demanding immediate payment for electricity and natural gas bill balances and threatening immediate service shut-off if payments are not received within an hour or two. If the customer has made a payment, the caller will say that the payment has not been received and an immediate payment must be made. For the most part the scammers are demanding that the customer secure a pre-paid debit card and provide the account number to the scammer who then redeems the card."
