I’m going to argue for free parking in Brattleboro.
The main reason we have to pay for parking here and not in most other towns in Vermont is to pay for our parking meters, parking enforcement, and parking infrastructure. Other than helping to pay for parking lot paving and snow removal, this is a silly, unnecessary burden for locals and visitors, and could instead be money spent in downtown stores.
The Brattleboro VFW located at 40 Black Mountain Road is open to the public for lunch. Lunch is served Mon-Fri from 11:30 – 1:30. Specials listed below are only $6 a plate. Hand made burger, fries, sweet potato fries, wings, onion rings, soups and sandwiches are also available. Take outs available by calling 257-0438

I have a rain gauge but until recently had not kept track of totals. On July 16 I started entering my daily readings into a simple spreadsheet. These storms are very hit and miss so totals are for my location on South Main Street only. For the second half of July I recorded 10.8 inches. and so far in August have received 5.25 inches. 16.05 inches total in about a week under one month. I don’t think we are dry anymore.
