Town of Easton Completes Final Phase of LED Streetlight Conversion Project
The Town of Easton is proud to announce that the final phase of its streetlight conversion project has been completed and that all Town owned lights in Easton are now fitted with energy efficient LED bulbs. The upgrade of the last 271 of 1442 Town owned streetlights represents the conclusion of a process beginning in 2013, when the Town purchased 98 percent of all streetlights in Easton from National Grid. Owning these lights rather than leasing them from National Grid saves the Town over $100,000 each year in perpetuity.

Taken together, the purchase and conversion of these streetlights will save the Town over $160,000 annually. Read More...

Easton Police Department Participating in 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back

 
On September 26th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Police Department on Lothrop Street, the EPD will take part in the 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Program. The National Prescription Drug Take-Back addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Many Americans are not aware that medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.

Notice from National Grid: Beware of Scams
From National Grid: "During this holiday season National Grid and local police departments received an increasing number of calls from customers being targeted by billing scam artists and impersonators trying to gain access to account information and entry to National Grid customers’ homes. The bill scams mirror reports received by utility companies throughout the country where the scammers are demanding immediate payment for electricity and natural gas bill balances and threatening immediate service shut-off if payments are not received within an hour or two. If the customer has made a payment, the caller will say that the payment has not been received and an immediate payment must be made. For the most part the scammers are demanding that the customer secure a pre-paid debit card and provide the account number to the scammer who then redeems the card."
