Sewer Users Survey - Response Needed

Posted: 10/21/20

The Town of Whitingham has applied for state and federal financing to help fund wastewater system improvements. Low-interest loans and grants can help reduce the burden of the costs at the local level for the project. The funding application process includes an income survey of Whitingham sewer users.  Each household in the service area is asked to complete a survey.  The information gathered will help ensure that the Town receives an appropriate level of funding assistance for the project. 

 

The survey is being administered by a local nonprofit organization, RCAP Solutions, Inc.  Individual responses will not be shared with the Town, or any local, state, or federal agencies. Rather, RCAP Solutions will receive the responses and prepare a summary report for potential funders. Funder guidelines require that we obtain a signed, completed survey from a high percentage of families, so your participation is very important. Residential Whitingham/Jacksonville sewer users should have received a survey a few weeks ago. Please return the survey to RCAP Solutions (postage supplied) or complete it online if you have not done so yet. If you have any questions, please contact Gig at 802-368-7500 or RCAP Solutions at 802-505-1037. Thanks for your participation.
