Selectman's Corner

September September 2015

From the Desk of the First Selectman



            The Town is gearing up for the start of school. It is always a pleasure to see the students arrive in new clothes, with fresh haircuts and scrubbed faces for the first day. Some are coming for the first time with wide eyed anticipation and some trepidation and some are coming for the last time with the confidence of being the senior students at Sayles. It is wonderful to see our future walking in the doors.


The Town is asking you to consider dropping off school supplies such as pens, pencils, crayons, notebooks, etc… These will help out those students who do not have the means to provide these supplies. The supplies can be turned in to either the Town Clerk or the school at the front office.


We have been very busy this summer roadside mowing, cutting grass, striping roads, painting stop bars all work that keeps up the regular maintenance of our roads. We also have finished work on First, Second and Third and a piece of River Street. In addition we have worked on a section of Inland and Potash Hill Rd fixing a little drainage. Most importantly we have started the complete rebuild of Sunrise and Grandview and are hopeful that we will be done with this work before the snow flies.


If you have a few free moments stop by the River Park for either an outside movie (every other Friday) or a concert (every Saturday) as we wind down our outside activities for the season. As always please keep an eye out for children and let them enjoy the outside activities and play safely.


As always thanks for your support!
