Have you gotten your copy of The Cheshire Herald yet? If not, here is what you are missing:
*After the Cheshire Town Council announced that all residents would be receiving new, larger recycling containers in order to accommodate its new single-stream recycling program, many members of the public protested that the containers, especially the 96-gallon ones, were much too large. The Council evidently heard those complaints. Earlier this week, the Council moved to change the requirements for who receive which size container in Cheshire. Read who will be receiving what, and how changes in the future can be made.
*In 2011, Cheshire, along with the rest of the state, was forced to deal with two major storms — Tropical Storm Irene and the October Nor'easter. Both knocked out power and downed trees in the area. In order to ensure that there is a cohesive plan in place if/when another major weather event takes place, the Town of Cheshire has formed an Emergency Team. Learn who is on the team and what they have in mind to combat a weather event.
*Cheshire Community Theater put on a rousing performance of The Sound Of Music last weekend. Was it the group's last show ever? Find out what it will take for the group to continue performing in Cheshire in the future.
*Make sure to check out our editorial this week, where we discuss how community organizations, such as the Cheshire Community Theater, have been struggling to attract new members, and what that will mean for the town going forward.
*As always, our Around Town, Sports, and Schools sections of the paper have all your local news and happenings.
