Selectman's Corner

December December 2014

From the Desk of the First Selectman



            So we have had our first snow wasn’t it beautiful to see the glistening of the bare branches. As breathtakingly beautiful it was I am hoping for a quieter, warmer winter than last year!


So where are we now in buttoning up our Town for a brisk winter season! We have finished Pautipaug Hill Rd for which I thank you all for supporting the funding for the project! We also have finished several small projects around Town making the drainage better with a little extra curbing, and upgrading access points into a few areas with extended drive aprons. Shetucket Village is completed! I hope most of you stopped by the open house to see the work that was done to upgrade this useful, needed housing environment.


In the last budget security cameras were approved and they should be installed and on line by the middle of December. They will be outside the Grist Mill, Town Hall, Fire Department, Recreation Fields, Salt Shed area, and Transfer Station. This will provide protection for the Town’s assets.


The state is nearly complete with the bridge for the year. They are planning to work up to the week before Christmas to complete as much as possible before the end of the construction season. They will be back in spring to complete the paving. There is also a new pavilion contracted by the state that was recently finished at Salt Rock Campground.


 The Fire Department outside building upgrades are almost complete for this year once the alcoves are installed we will be done with current outside projects. The garage has been upgraded needing just an inside coat of paint.


We will continue to work on roadsides until the snow flies in earnest. We will be mowing, cutting trees, and picking up brush, etc… Please be mindful of the workers when you are driving around.


Lastly I hope you join us in celebrating the holidays by displaying luminaries!


As always thanks for your support
