The Selectmen are working on transitioning the current ad hoc Composting Committee into a Sustainability Committee to work on a range of projects.  If you are interested or would like to learn more about the opportunity, please contact the Selectmen’s Office.

The new Paving work has been delayed due to the wet weather.  Work is finally underway on Pine Street – while it will be smooth by July 4th the finish coat will be put down later in July.  Check for updates on this and other construction projects at the Town’s web site.   

Harbor Security Cameras will be installed through a collaborative grant effort of the US Coast Guard and the MA Harbormaster’s Association.  The cameras will be monitoring public areas only. No private property will be monitored.    

A new tiered water rate structure has been approved that will provide financial incentives to use less water.  A mailing to all water customers explaining the new rates was mailed out to all water customers along with tips for using less water.
