BOS WEEKLY UPDATE – October 4, 2018

Be an informed voter! One last set of informational meetings on the proposed new elementary school before the Special Town Meeting is planned for October 10 (a morning session at Essex Elementary School at 9AM and an evening session at the Memorial School at 7PM.)  Also, there will be a pre-town meeting session to review any procedural questions hosted by Moderator Alan Wilson Saturday morning at 9AM on October 13th at Town Hall . 

Special Town Meeting scheduled for October 15, 7PM -  A town vote on the proposal for a new elementary school is the main attraction along with two town bylaw changes (reduce the size of the Finance Committee from 9 to 7 members; clarify snow ban parking violation fines.) Need more information?  Check out the School’s and Town’s web sites for details. A required second vote on the school project will be held November 6th by ballot in conjunction with the state elections.

Construction Work:  A new drainage line will be installed on Burnham Lane and down School Street to Sawmill Brook.  Work begins October 8 and will last through early November.  One lane of traffic will be most of the time maintained but occasional detours may be necessary.  You are encouraged to use an alternate route.

How do you like to get your town news?  Efforts continue to communicate effectively with residents.  New social media platforms are coming soon.  We will continue to use the Cricket and occasionally send out mailings to all households.  Notification of meetings, etc. can be received by signing up through the Town’s web site.  Let us know what works best for you!

Trash, Recycling, and Compost pick up:  One day delay due to Columbus Day! Normal Monday pickups will take place on Tuesday; Normal Tuesday pickup will take place on Wednesday.
