Green Mountain Traffic Control recognized by AGC

ROCKINGHAM -- Every year, the Associated General Contractors of Vermont and the Vermont Independent Electrical Contractors Association host an annual meeting and award ceremony to honor members and their outstanding projects. This meeting also serves as the month long, kick-off to the annual toy drive fundraiser, which benefits local Vermont families and The Salvation Army.

A local Windham County safety service provider, Green Mountain Traffic Control, Inc., was awarded the Best Builders Award for Outstanding Quality of Work and Effort for Emergency Service with Green Mountain Power’s Springfield garage covering Springfield, Chester and Hartland. Deborah Wright, GMTC president, expressed her pride in her staff and employees, for their diligence in performing their job to keep Vermont safe and for being recognized with this award.
