In March, homes across the country received invitations to complete the 2020 Census. It has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone or by mail—all without having to meet a census taker. They are making rounds right now.

The 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade... School lunches. Plans for highways. Support for firefighters and families in need. Census results affect your community every day.

The Town of Edwards encourages everyone to complete the US Census either online or in person. For online, click here:

The Town of Edwards is working with the Toohey family and Omni Navitas, Boston, MA on a proposed solar farm located at the old Noble farm at the edge of the village limits. We have had one preliminary meeting with Omni & Toohey's regarding this project. We have many steps to follow.  The next step is to help Cory, from Omni Navitas, get a list of interested residential and commercial accounts that would be interested in signing up, no cost, for a reduction in your monthly electric bills.



The share of the Solar Farm is sized to provide a 10% savings in your monthly bills if you sign up. There are two forms, one residential, 1 commercial. Cory would like this for the next Town Board meeting on 8/12/2020. We are also, trying to figure out how/where to safely hold an open meeting on this.

Town Offices will be closed to the public and all business will be conducted via phone, email and or regular mail. There is also a drop box.
