Forced entry at Killington Transfer Station leads to “no cash” policy

The Killington Transfer Station was broken into between Monday afternoon and Saturday morning, August 6-11. The cash box was robbed. Approximately $40 was stolen.

David Proc discovered the cash missing on Saturday morning when he returned to work. He reported it to State Police and Town Manager Seth Webb, who reported it to both Constables immediately. Whit Montgomery responded, visited the scene, photographed the damage and filed a report.

It appeared as though someone use a screwdriver to break into the building. There are clear signs of forced entry.

In order to prevent future theft the town will instituted a "no cash" policy at the Transfer Station. Residents will now be required to pre-purchase at the Town Offices. Signage at the transfer station will alert residents of this change as well as update website info.
The town will also creat smaller punch card amounts of 5 ($12) and 10 bags ($24); current options are 24 bag ($57), 48 bags ($114).
