Selectman's Corner

August August 2017

From the Desk of the First Selectman,


          Hard to believe that we are heading to the end of summer. The days have been deliciously sultry with the nights cool enough for sleeping. Take some time to enjoy all the wonderful assets the Town has open spaces, outside music, movies in the park, a river clean enough to swim and fish in, and so much more!


The Town will be wrapping up our summer events and start preparing for, dare I say it … school. We will be accepting donations of school supplies to help out those that are struggling to make ends meet.


The public works crew is out roadside mowing (and cutting every piece of errant grass wherever it may be). They also continue painting lines in our parking lots. In addition, we are working on trail clearing (and we are looking for volunteers) and rebuilding trails throughout the summer. Please stop and thank them for all they do.


The Town continues to work on the Plan of Conservation and Development and a Town wide revaluation. If you have questions or concerns about either of these please contact either the assessor (for the revaluation) or the land use clerk (for the Plan of Conservation and Development).


Please take note that we are cleaning up the Baltic Mill site with a two million-dollar brownfields grant. Once this is completed an RFP will be going out to solicit project ideas. We are looking for participants on both the Economic Development committee and the Baltic Mills committee to review and comment on the proposals and make suggestions on potential uses of this site. Call the Town Hall and let Barbara know you are interested at 860-822-3000 x 201.


As always thanks for your support,



First Selectman
