Selectman's Corner

March March 2015

From the Desk of the First Selectman



            Well we have made it thru February and while the Groundhog disappointed me by predicting more winter we are nearing the end of this cold, snowy weather. I am so hoping for warmer days and the poking through the ground of dainty but strong willed flowers!


In this edition the completed projects done over the last few years will be outlined for you. Let me start by thanking you for providing the resources that were necessary to finish them.


Please be mindful of public works crews (all over the state) that are out making roadsides safe and clear. In Sprague our crew has been diligently working as usual doing a great job. When the weather allows we will be back to chipping, chopping and cleaning up roadsides, cemeteries, and recreation fields. We will also continue to work to keep roadsides open pushing snow off road beds or trucking it to the concrete pad in the old Baltic Mill site.


Our reconstituted Economic Development Commission will be meeting in March please send along your ideas for the Baltic Mill site. They are also interested in your ideas on other new businesses you would like to see in Town.


Remember to keep your driveways and sidewalks clear and safe.




As always thanks for your support


Cathy Osten
