Selectman's Corner

July July 2014

From the Desk of the First Selectman



            Thanks to all who came out and voted on the budget. It is always nice to see so many people come out to give us their opinion on the work we all do!


            Your patience was appreciated as construction was going on around Town. We have finished Elm and Maple Street, a portion of River, and the repair work to the sidewalks. We are still working to complete work on the Town Garage.


The bridge near Dimitri’s is being replaced with the work being funded by the State. This project may result in a traffic pattern change to hopefully accommodate an earlier than planned completion. The current target date for completion is January 2015.


We received a STEAP (small town economic assistance program) grant to work on Pautipaug Hill Road. The Board of Finance authorized an additional appropriation of $400,000 which was approved by the Town. Plans will be put out to bid in June. I know those who live in this area will be most appreciative! The target completion date for this project is October.


            Don’t forget to sign up for the summer recreation program, or stop by any of our outside events from by the river concerts, to outside movies, to informational hikes on the preserve there is always something going on!


As always thanks for your support


Cathy Osten
