NORTH SMITHFIELD DPW FACILITIES-
STORM CLEANUP

 

Good afternoon,

 

The tree damage from the weekend storm has obviously created a large volume of material that must be disposed of.  Our Department of Public Works is planning to help with that by making a dumpster available at the DPW facility.  The yard is open to receive that material today and tomorrow for anyone who wants to beat the snow that will be hitting us Wednesday and Thursday.  

 

Since the focus of DPW work on Wednesday must be to be ready for the snowstorm, we ask that no such material be brought there on Wednesday or Thursday.  DPW will continue to receive material on Friday and Saturday.  If additional dates seem necessary, we will make an appropriate announcement.

 

Also, though our DPW personnel will not enter any private property to remove trees, or even to collect branches, they are prepared to collect material at the curb line of your home.  You will be making it easy for us to handle your branches if you leave them in long lengths so they can be chipped.  Please contact DPW at 767-2200 extension 348 to make them aware that you have material to pick up.

 

Again, the snowstorm that is forecast for Wednesday into Thursday will force our focus on keeping roads open, so we will appreciate your understanding of the schedule detailed above.  Safety in the DPW yard is paramount.

President Trump says he's anxious to find out what happened to missing Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi [[ ka-SHO-gi ]]. In remarks to reporters at the White House today, Trump also insisted that he is not "giving cover" to Saudi Arabia. He would not say whether the FBI is involved in the investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance after the journalist entered the Saudi consulate in Turkey earlier this month..       Lottery fever may be setting in as Friday's Mega Millions jackpot approaches a billion dollars. Lottery officials say the prize amount crossed over 900-million-dollars due to "brisk sales." This makes the sum the second-biggest payout in U.S. lottery history.        Police in Wisconsin say a tip didn't pan out about a Miami sighting of the 13-year-old girl missing since her parents were found dead. Investigators are asking the public for help as the search for Jayme Closs is now in the third day. Officers found the bodies of her parents at the family home after responding to a 9-1-1 call early Monday.        Stocks are falling on Wall Street. At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 92 points to 25-706. The Nasdaq dropped three points to 76-42. The S&P 500 lost one point to 28-09.       The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case that could impact the right of free speech on social media. In Manhattan Community Access Corporation. v. Halleck, two producers claim a public access cable channel censored them for their political views. They claim that the channel is a public forum protected by the First Amendment.        Florida police are getting credit for solving a major donut heist. A Krispy Kreme van was reported stolen yesterday in Lake City and later found 300 miles away in Clearwater, still full of donuts. The store manager allowed the officers to keep the donuts as a show of thanks. A few were eaten, but cops donated the rest to a local homeless food event.
