Communities Reach Deal On Propane Facility

Oct 10, 2013

Two Vermont communities have reached an agreement that clears the way for a railroad company to build a propane facility along Route 5.

The agreement between the town of Rockingham and village of Bellows Falls and Green Mountain Railroad this week permits installation of three 60,000-gallon propane tanks alongside the tracks in Rockingham.

In exchange, the area gets improvements to local roads and water mains.

The Rockingham selectmen and Bellows Falls village trustees approved the contract and agreed to issue the fire permits the company needed to proceed.

The Eagle Times of Claremont reports the project could create up to 10 jobs.
