Storm Damage from July 18 - A severe storm on July 18, 2015, brought down numerous trees in the Town of Washington.

The Town Road Department responded at approximately 3:00 a.m. and cleared all Town roads by 12:30 p.m. 25 roads were completely blocked by downed trees and several others partially blocked.
Landowners owning property adjacent to the right-of-way where these trees were pushed off the road are welcome to take the wood. Such wood must be stacked and stored outside the right-of-way. The Town will address the remaining items beginning in late August.
