Selectman's Corner

February February 2015

From the Desk of the First Selectman



            I hope you are enjoying the lower than average fuel prices, I know I am! The savings is good both personally and for the Town.


During the next few months while the budget process is moving along I will provide you with a review of some of the projects that you have provided the resources to complete. The Town has moved forward in many ways this would not be possible without your help.


In the last year or so funds approved along with grants achieved allowed us to purchase a chipper which will arrive in February. We will use it to continue cleaning up roadsides, cemeteries, and recreation fields to enhance the work the utility company has done. In addition we will use the brush hog purchased a couple of years ago to open up fields around the reservoir and transfer station.


We have a renewed local interest in committees please check out the vacancies left and let me know if you see anything that interests you. These committees are only as successful as your involvement.


If you are looking for a fun outside activity stop by to ice skate at The Pines many people have been out there enjoying this activity. Remember to keep your driveways and sidewalks clear and safe.


As always thanks for your support
