Town of Bolton Firewood Lottery
Do you like affordable, local firewood?
As part of the Bolton’s Preston Pond Area Management Plan when there is logging on the PPMA, some firewood harvested from the property shall be made available to the citizens of Bolton. Logging is set to start this winter, and the Town asking for interested households to enter a lottery system for the firewood.
There will be up to 60 cords available this Winter with three cords available to each household. The cost for the wood will be $150.00 for three cords ($50/cord) to cover trucking and management of the program. The wood will be delivered in “log length” form by a logging truck and off-loaded onto your property. You must have space for three cord of log length wood as we cannot manage smaller, split loads. This wood is for personal use only, and is not to be sold by the receiving household. The lottery is limited to one entry per household, and is not open to any current Select Board members nor members of their household. Any citizens that aren’t selected to receive wood in 2018 will be first in line for winter 2019 should they re-enter the lottery next year.
To enter the lottery, please drop off a check for $150.00 and this form to the Town Office by Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 5pm. Checks should be made payable to Town of Bolton. The check will only be cashed if you are selected; otherwise, the check will be returned after the February drawing.
The Bolton Select Board has appointed two new Animal Control Officers: Jeffrey Leete and Rob Mullen. Please contact Jeffrey and/or Rob directly for all animal complaints and/or welfare concerns. Contact information here.
