Thank you to our summer staff! It is hard to believe that September is here. It has been another busy and successful summer at our parks, beaches and harbor. Special thanks are due to our hard working seasonal staff as well as to our regular staff. But staff alone cannot do it all, particularly if the warm weather continues as seasonal staff return to school – we depend on each resident and visitor to do their part to help us keep our public areas clean and enjoyable for everyone. Pitch in!
Sept. 11 Remembrance Ceremony: Please join us for a brief ceremony in front of the fire station on Sept. 11 at 10 a.m.
Special Town Meeting scheduled for Oct. 15 – mark your calendars! A Special Town Meeting is scheduled for a town vote on the proposal for a new elementary school along with a few town bylaw changes. If you have waited until now to get informed, now is the time to do so! Check out the School’s and Town’s web sites for detailed information. Assuming voters advance the plan, a second vote on the school project will be held Nov. 6 by ballot in conjunction with the state elections.
Construction work: The repaving on Lincoln Street was completed on time and on budget! As an added plus, additional clearance was gained for the recently repaired pedestrian bridge thus we hope to avoid future damage to the structure. The next projects to get underway will be the replacement of an old water main along Black Beach on Ocean Street and a new drainage project on School Street from Burnham Lane to Sawmill Brook. Projects updates will be posted on the town’s website.
