A Message From First Selectman Bindelglass

Updated 10/14/2022

Good afternoon

We are all shocked and saddened by the events which took place in Bristol this week. Our thoughts and prayers go out to that department and the families of the slain officers. No town is exempt from the possibility of such atrocity and that should serve as a reminder of how lucky Easton is to have such a dedicated and caring group of officers. This is a particularly good time to do what we should be doing every day and thank them for their outstanding service. Also, they are among the many, many fine folks who serve us and we are blessed to have all of them.

To update you on the situation at EVS, monitoring wells are being dug as was mandated by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. At the last Board of Selectmen meeting Steve Montgomery pointed out the location of the material which could be found on the DEEP website regarding the handling of the contamination.
