Welcome to Vernon, a celebrated place to live, work and visit. 

Crumbling Foundations

Vernon Residents:

     On 8/16/2016 the attached letter was sent to residents in the Town of Vernon who had a home built or an addition added between the years of 1980 and 2003.  I put this letter on our web page so that it can be accessed by anyone we may have missed and is also available to the public.  Although the years used in this mailing ended in 2003 it is not the last year of this terrible situation.  The state uses 2003 as the last year that a home was found with the bad concrete but the company involved did not stop providing the affected concrete until 2016.  Unfortunately I believe that we will continue to see this problem as we move forward.  I will continue to add updates as we get them. Click here.
