Selectman's Corner

April April 2015

From the Desk of the First Selectman



            Finally the sun and some warmth have reached us and I am bubbling with delight! I love seeing daffodils push their way through the warming soil providing us with the hope of renewal and beginnings. Take time to enjoy a spring walk around our Town and see the work of volunteers as the color of spring peeks through and adorns our roadsides.


Part of spring is the budget process which is moving along with all departments having presented their requests to the Board of Finance. The Town has moved forward in many ways which would not be possible without your help.


We will be out soon with the sweeper cleaning up the remains of this brutal winter. We will also continue cleaning up roadsides, cemeteries, and recreation fields with the chipper and roadside mower. In addition we will use the brush hog to open up fields around the reservoir and transfer station. Please keep an eye on the workers and let them finish their work safely.


The newly reconstituted Economic Development Committee has met and is eager to bring a renewed effort in this area for our Town.


If you are looking for a fun outside activity stop by and join us for the Easter Egg Hunt, Ride the Shetucket, and/or Earth Day events.


As always thanks for your support
