Updated May 11, 2020

Updated from July 6th notice:



**The level of our reservoir is now dropping daily and at an alarming rate**  

It is important that everyone do their part to conserve. It is very expensive if we have to haul in water and will likely result in further rate increases. 

Due to dry conditions slowing the yield of our spring as well as the water project starting in the next week we are putting into effect a mandatory water conservation plan. Until further notice all village water system users need to conserve water wherever possible. 

The following activities are prohibited during this period.

  • Outdoor watering
  • Use of sprinklers
  • Filling pools
  • Washing vehicles 
  • Recreational uses of water        

*Please limit indoor uses wherever you can. 

Please fix and report any water leaks, dripping faucets, sounds of running water or wet areas that normal would be dry.

Thank you for your cooperation. 



2020 Cenus!

Franklin is only at 50% participation!! Curious if the census really matters to your friends and family here in Vermont? The 2020 Census matters because it will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade. Everyone we know is likely to benefit as these funds effect our roadways, emergency services, health care systems, Medicaid, Medicare, Veteran services, schools, and so much more. The results also provide a snapshot of our nation—who we are, where we live, and so much more. Respond now or learn more at 2020census.gov.
