Lt. Governor Phil Scott’s removal program is ready to begin demolition. Thanks to an outpouring of donations after that announcement, the task force is now able to offer a $1,500 credit to each homeowner – making the removal service essentially free.
Any Weston’s resident who is interested in taking advantage of this program will need to attend one of the following sessions, to be held at the park:
Monday, October 24, 2:00 PM
Monday, October 24, 5:00 PM
Wednesday, October 26, 4:00 PM
At these meetings, task force representatives will explain the process and make sure that each homeowner has completed all of the steps required to proceed with removal. First and foremost, homeowners need to have completed the FEMA grant process and be satisfied with their awards, since FEMA requires that the individual still own their home in order to receive financial assistance. Homeowners also need to produce evidence of title, show written consent from any lenders holding a lien on their home, be in good tax standing with their town, and sign a general release form.
Contractors will begin demolition at Weston’s starting Monday, October 31.
