Vt. Town Offices Reopen a Year After Irene, With Help From Flood Insurance

August 8, 2012

The town offices and police department in a small southern Vermont town have reopened this week in their original home nearly a year after flooding from Tropical Storm Irene forced them to move.

The Wilmington town offices and police department reopened at the rebuilt and renovated Town Hall on Monday.

Torrential rains from Irene flooded the building’s first floor along Main Street, filling rooms with more than 4 feet of water and debris.

Town Manager Scott Murphy told the Brattleboro Reformer that renovation costs were about $80,000 and have been paid for by the town’s flood insurance.
