BOS WEEKLY UPDATE – August 1, 2019

Happy August to All! The summer weather keeps coming making the beaches and harbor area very popular.  The last concert for this summer at Masconomo Park is Tuesday evening.  Residents and visitors alike continue to enjoy our wonderful coastal resources. Please be mindful of those that may come after you and clean up the area around you. 

Upcoming Meetings:  Our board meetings in August will take place on the 5th and 19th.  On the agenda for the 5th is the approval of an updated personnel handbook for all staff as well as a discussion of ways to enhance communications and citizen engagement  On the 19th discussions will continue on shared service opportunities between Essex and the School District.   To be included in the discussion is the possibility of moving forward with a School Resource Officer along with a series of other new recommendations for greater collaboration between the three entities.

Calling local artists!  Each year the Accounting department puts together the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) – an audit and annual review of our finances.  This award winning document uses local art work throughout the pages to provide a nice counterpart to the spreadsheets contained in the report.  Interested in contributing to the upcoming report?
