When trimming grass, bushes and trees, please remember to also trim around the edges of your property especially along alleyways and boulevards.
Sewer Main Blockages are preventable! Please do not put any grease or solids down your sewer line as this causes blockages in the Mains and at Lift Stations. Not only is it harmful for Town infrastructure but it can also cause private lines to become blocked. Public Works has found everything from tin can lids, to lipstick, to toys at our lift stations.
Please ensure that garbage and recycling cans are only at the curb the evening before pick up and removed as soon as possible after pick up has occurred. If cans are left at the roadside for extended periods homeowners may be held responsible if they are damaged.
We are looking for pictures of Stoughton & District Golf Course for promotional materials, preferably containing golfers in action. If you have any pictures please contact the Town Office or email them to email@example.com

The dry conditions this year have caused strain on our wells so a Water Conservation Policy has been put into effect. Residents are asked to only water when necessary, and only every second day with houses evenly numbered watering on the even days of the month and odd numbered houses watering on the odd days of the month. This will remain in effect until our well levels return to normal.

The Fire Chief
Wishes to thank the members of the Stoughton – Tecumseh & District Fire Department for all their hard work and practice preparing for the 2nd annual Alameda Firemen’s Rodeo. The team of four, under Captain Evan Raiwet’s auspices, garnered the department a 3rd place finish. The rodeo consisted of 10 timed events involving hoses, nozzles, ladders, rescue, etc. with all the teams competing for the fastest times.
Captain Raiwet was in charge of putting together the team which consisted of Craig Donnelly, Liam Hagen and Matthew Warburton, and organizing the practices. Everything came together and the team performed with a great deal of professionalism that makes myself and the department proud.
Thank you from the Fire Chief and members of the Stoughton – Tecumseh & District Fire Department.
