The newly renovated Town Hall auditorium continues to be a very busy place with a number of community events, theatre, school concerts, fundraisers and movies throughout the year. Based on a survey, outdoor concerts was the most popular request by town residents. The Town Hall green presents the perfect outdoor setting, and if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, the auditorium is available upstairs.
This series is presented by the Town of West Rutland Recreation Department and has been generously supported with the help of our sponsors: Rutland Regional Medical Center, Lake Sunapee Bank, Stewart’s Shops, Price Chopper, Omya, Carris Reels and H. Hirschmann LTD.

The Rutland County Solid Waste District (RCSWD) received approval of a new Solid Waste Implementation Plan (SWIP) by the VT Agency of Natural Resources late last year. The SWIP meets the requirements of the State’s Material Management Plan and delineates how solid and hazardous waste will be managed in the District towns for a five year period. The requirements of the SWIP are extensive. The SWIP is available on the District’s website.
One of the requirements of the SWIP is for solid waste management entities survey constituents on knowledge of variable rate pricing, recycling, organics, construction and demolition debris and Household Hazardous Waste.
Your participation in filling out the survey would be most appreciated. The survey can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/S86DB77
