Town of Hardwick – Coronavirus Update 03/24/2020


The Town of Hardwick is in the process of having a number of personnel work from a home base to do our part on social distancing measures.  Business operations are continuing and please recognize there will be some delays on certain service functions.  As noted previously field operations continue to be conducted and this includes services such as plowing, public works to include water and wastewater service, and police department service to both Hardwick and Greensboro.  The following are managed independently from the Town but rest assured fire and rescue operations are continuing uninterrupted.  More details on town operations at hardwickvt.gov

If you sign up for these deliveries, school officials will be marking your house with a piece of brightly colored tape so that deliverers can identify drop off locations.  In addition to meal deliveries, we have three sites where you can pick up meals: Craftsbury Academy, Hardwick Elementary, and Hazen Union.  At these sites breakfasts will be available 7:30-9, and lunches 11-12:30.  Questions?
