Town of Sprague

Selectman's Corner

November 2017

From the Desk of the First Selectman,


          This fall has been quite mild with warm nights and even warmer days.  I love the smells and sounds of this time of year, crisp, clear, and don’t forget the crunching of leaves underfoot.  I hope this is a prelude to a mild winter!


We are still looking for volunteers to help with our daffodil planting program to continue developing that “ray of sunshine” view in the spring. In addition, we are looking for some help to put up 3 more raised beds at the community garden this will bring the number of beds to 6.


In addition, we have completed a trail from Sayles school to the path around the reservoir. This will allow the school to access an area to develop an increased cross country program.


The public works crew has completed roadside mowing and is gearing up to cut brush throughout the Town. In addition, trucks are being prepared for, oh my, winter… Sand and salt has been mixed, truck repairs have been completed now we are onto waiting for the white stuff. Don’t forget to stop and thank the Town crew for all they do.


The Town has a draft of the updated Plan of Conservation and Development. It will be posted it on the new Town website once Planning and Zoning approves this draft. At that time, you will have time to comment before final approval.


Also, the Town wide revaluation has reached preliminary completion. I remind you if you have questions or concerns the revaluation please contact the assessor (for the revaluation).


Please take note that an RFP for the Baltic Mill site cleanup will be going out in the next couple of weeks. We are soliciting college engineering students to provide a conceptual idea for the Baltic Mill site. This plan will be provided to the Town for comment before putting an RFP out to developers. 


As always thanks for your support,



First Selectman
