Town projects are well under way as we get ready for spring work. Or is it directly to summer?
The annual clean up has occurred and will be ongoing through the month of May, under the leadership of Scout Troop 58. This Troop dedicates itself to cleaning up the center of the Town, along the Green and at the Town buildings. As with all things, the weather has been a bit less cooperative this year but the scouts and the volunteers carry on.
Many thanks to the residents who have been doing clean up in their own neighborhoods, picking up trash along the roadside.
If you have been using the transfer station, you might notice a new face there. Doug Blakeslee joined our ranks as a town employee a few months ago. Doug is still learning the ropes but is enjoying the job. Stop by and say hi to Doug.
The annual Memorial Day parade will be on Saturday May 26, 2018. This event is a wonderful way to pay tribute to our veterans. This year’s theme is 100 Years from “Over There” (100 years from the end of WWI). If you want to participate, please contact the Town Hall at 860 642 6100. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather. The parade kicks off at 10 AM at the north end of the green and will conclude in front of Town Hall. Please make time for the program at the conclusion of the parade.
Recently the Board of Selectman received an update on the road and bridge project. Due to the permitting process, it has been decided that we will work on plans for the improvement of the bridges on Olenick, Church, Card and Bender Roads. The permitting process for these bridges is not as challenging due to the design of the bridges. The Town will provide to residents a definitive schedule of construction once all the information is available.
Some recent town improvements have occurred over the last several months, including painting the entire inside of the Town Hall. The Senior Center garage is completed. Other projects in the works include a generator at the senior center, patching of concrete at the Town Hall after an especially difficult winter, and putting a new look on the Town Hall conference room.
As we enter spring and summer, the Town wants to alert you to some projects that are under way.
Road sweeping is well underway on our town roads. Starting in the Amston Lake area first and then over a dozen other roads. Also you will see many roads getting crack sealed. Add to it dirt roads will be graded and catch basin cleaning. All of this is dependent on the weather and we hope to get much accomplished.
Another large project is to re-do the walk way on the Green. It needs significant attention. Unfortunately right now, the Green is so wet that to place equipment on the Green will damage the property. We are hoping for some dry weather. We have all the material ready to go and are hoping in a month or so we will be able to focus on this worthwhile endeavor.
The Town would like to remind everyone that slowing down in work zones will ensure all of our employees are safe as well as residents. With all the projects planned this year, you may find us anywhere in and out of our equipment. Be alert while driving because along with the sweeping of our roadways, construction projects, roadside mowing and other projects; please drive slow for our safety and yours be on the lookout for our personnel, signs, trucks, bright colored shirts and slow moving equipment at any time.
The Town passed the budget on May 7, 2018 at the annual town meeting. Our average attendance is around 90 or so, and this year there were about 100 people present. Thank you for making the time to come and listen to the presentations and cast your vote. Countless hours are spent between the boards and commissions with budget preparation.
