Blazon: Per fess argent a wood grouse proper and vert a demi-wheel of five spokes, two broken, issuant from the base of the first

The broken wheel may be a reference to St. Catherine, patroness of the local church. Unfortunately, the wood grouse has no discernible source. (And I am deeply horrified by the poorly photoshopped charge in this depiction. I cannot imagine what a town must have done to deserve that.)
