Selectman's Corner

October October 2015

From the Desk of the First Selectman



            School has started and the refreshing days of fall are here! The foliage adorns the trees in vibrant reds and golds, the leaves shrink inside themselves and the squirrels and chipmunks scamper about preparing their winter cache.


The Town was fortunate to receive a donation of school supplies from the United Way. They filled a table with pens, pencils, notebooks, backpacks, etc. Thank you for your continued support of our Town. These same folks sponsor the weekly food drops at the Community Center. We are lucky to have them as a community partner.


We remain busy with roadside mowing, cutting grass, chipping fallen debris and preparing roadsides for the winter. We have completed work on a section of Inland and Potash Hill Rd fixing a little drainage and remain on track to complete a rebuild of Sunrise and Grandview before the snow flies.


The Water and Sewer department has started to work on a sewer project in Hanover. Its completion has not yet been determined.


We ended the summer concert series in September with an appearance of the Glenn Hansen Orchestra. This is a training orchestra for young people entering this live music venue. They have come every year for six years and I am so appreciative of their music and their mission. The concert series is supported by the Mohegan Golf Club another great community partner.


Take some time to enjoy the fall foliage and our lovely trails and outside venues. It is simply put a stunning place to be surrounded by.


As always thanks for your support!
