Halloween trick-or-treating in Sudbury is being delayed until Friday, Nov. 2, the Sudbury Police Department announced on its website Tuesday.
"This decision has been made by the Sudbury Police Department due to safety concerns for children and families," the website states. "The hazards from downed trees and wires are just too widespread for all the debris to be cleaned up by Wednesday."
The police also announced that a brush drop-off site has been established where residents only may bring brush to the Town-owned borrow pit, also known as the gravel pit, at 80 North Road. Contractors may not dump brush at this site. The pit is located on Route 117 near the Concord/Sudbury town line.
Sudbury police say this temporary brush drop-off site is for brush only (no trash or other waste) and will be open beginning Monday, Nov. 5. The site will remain open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. until November 17, excepting Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
Extra power strips have been set up in the Goodnow Library as a charging station for those without power at home, according to the police website. The library will be open regular hours, 9 a.m to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Additionally, the Fairbank Community Center Shelter, which has several outlets residents can use, will continue to be open until 8 a.m. on Wednesday.
