Request from your Bennington Cemetery Trustees.
In 2020 the Cemetery Trustees changed how they keep their records. The Cemetery Trustees are looking to make copies of cemetery deeds for lots held at the two Town Cemeteries located in Bennington. Sunnyside at the center of town and Evergreen on Old Stagecoach Road. Again, Only for lots purchased prior to 2020. This request is being made so that the Cemetery Trustees can update their records according to our policies and procedures. The Trustees are asking that you bring or mail a copy of your Deed to the Bennington Town Hall. Any questions can be addressed to any of the Cemetery Trustees.
Respectfully, Robert Christian, Chairman Karen Belcher Kelly St. Pierre
The Town of Bennington is moving forward on a Community Power plan. Community Power is a program approved by the State Legislature that allows towns to buy power at rates that are lower than utilities’ rates. The Town thus becomes the power supplier for residents and businesses. The purpose of this program is to lower energy costs in the town of Bennington. The plan will need Town Meeting approval. Once it is approved, we will be able to bring the energy to all residents and businesses that choose to participate, at a competitive price. We ask that you complete this survey, so we know what residents are most interested in. Members of the Community Power Committee will be at the Transfer Station handing out the survey, or you can obtain them at the Town Office and at local businesses. You can also take the survey on line by scanning the QR code on the attached flyer or by going to surveymonkey.com/r/BenningtonCP. We appreciate your help with this becoming a successful program for all Bennington residents and businesses.
