Rain Barrel Rebate Program

In an effort to conserve drinking water by harvesting rainwater, the Public Works Department is offering residents the opportunity to apply for a $40 rebate for the purchase of a rain barrel. After purchasing the rain barrel of your choice, complete and submit the rebate form located on the Town’s website. A copy of your receipt clearly indicating the purchase of a rain barrel is required.
