Plainfield's Hazard Mitigation Committee is planning next year's budget at our special meeting this Thursday, January 10.
Please feel free to join us. We meet in the public room behind the Town Clerk's office in the Municipal Building (rear door) and start at 6 p.m.
1. Review of notes from our last meeting with Greg Chamberlin (there was no quorum, so there are no Minutes to approve).
2. Discussion of 2018-2019 Hazard Mitigation Committee budget.
3. Report on PUC's dam site visit, our submission of interrogatories to GMP, and their reply.
4. Tentative planning for a May Public Forum on Hazard Preparedness as a Town-wide team.
Plainfield Hazard Mitigation Committee
The Plainfield Hazard Mitigation Committee meets every third Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM at the Town Office. The Hazard Mitigation Committee's goals include providing the Select Board with information and suggestions to reduce or eliminate the long-term risks to human life and property in Plainfield from fluvial erosion/landslide, flash floods/floods, Marshfield dam releases or failure, winter storms, long-term electric outages, hazardous waste spills, forest fires and other identified hazards. The committee gathers information and develops long term recommendations to mitigate the impact of future flood and other hazardous events on public safety and infrastructure.
