Groton Rubble Site to get new entrance gate

Groton Rubble Site to get new entrance gate

Groton Independent

Groton has been battling abuse of the rubble site for the past several years. Each year the city gets inspected by the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources; this past year, it barely passed its inspection.

“We have to do something or we’ll lose it,” said Mayor Roy Olson. “I’ve asked Paul (Kosel) to come up with a plan.”

The new idea is a computerized gate. Essentially, the rubble site will be closed all the time and the only way to gain entrance is with a code. The code will have to be entered when you enter and when  you leave. For those who use the rubble site frequently, a remote control device can be rented for the season.

The computerized gate will log whenever anyone enters and leaves the rubble site, whether it is by entering a code on the keypad or it it is by remote control. A camera will also be posted.

The new gate system will be installed at the first entrance to the rubble site and will be operational this spring. A security light will also be installed at the gate.
