The Selectmen are committed to reviewing, assessing and providing alternatives to support the efforts of our Firefighters ensuring a balance of public safety and fiscal responsibility.   The discussions that began during the winter’s budget process will continue with a goal of solutions being developed by the fall.  Have ideas?  Let us know what you think.  Even better, consider becoming a call firefighter!

The Outdoor Water Ban has been removed for now. Residents are encouraged to continue to conserve water.  A new tiered water rate structure is being developed that will provide financial incentives to use less water.  The proposal will be the subject of a public hearing at the June 5th Selectmen’s meeting.
