The following locations will be closed from 7:00 p.m. through 8:00 a.m., effective immediately: all municipal complexes including the Reed Community Building, the Opachinski Fields, Gray’s Beach, Benelli Field, Kingston Elementary and Intermediate School fields, Silver Lake Regional High School and Middle School fields, and all the fields at Sacred Heart School.
Municipal recreational complexes will continue to be ground sprayed on a weekly basis and town-wide ground spraying has also been scheduled.
