Moderate Drought Conditions

Southern New Hampshire is currently in a moderate drought which impacts groundwater levels. The Select Board is monitoring the situation and is not imposing a water restriction as authorized by Ordinance 2016-02 at this time. However, the Town asks that whether you receive your water from the Rollinsford Water Sewer District or a private well that you be mindful of the situation. Drought conditions also increase the risk of fire.

For more information read the ordinance for actions you may take proactively and visit the website of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services to learn more about the situation, the implications and outlook.

Town and Police Response to a Recent Police Incident

We appreciate the concern for the individual who was recently involved in an incident in Rollinsford. The Town of Rollinsford and the Rollinsford Police Department are committed to assuring for the public that the situation was handled in a professional, non-biased manner based upon the information known during the incident. Unfortunately, because this is an ongoing investigation we are not allowed to disclose any specific information about the incident.

We are aware that a fake Rollinsford Police Department Facebook page has been set up and we strongly disagree with the content posted by its creator.

The officer who is accused of abusing his wife has never been employed by the Rollinsford Police Department. He works for a neighboring department which is conducting its own investigation. The case is now being handled by the Strafford County Attorney’s Office and is out the hands of Rollinsford Police. The Rollinsford Police Department has demonstrated in the past that it does not and will not protect police officers. If there is probable cause to make an arrest, that person will be arrested regardless of who they are.

The Town is engaging with an outside agency to conduct a review of how this case was managed by our Police Department to assure we are continuing to meet our own high standards of equity, dignity, and respect for all those with whom we come into contact. The report of that investigation will be made available to the public as soon as possible. The Rollinsford Police Department has always treated all persons with courtesy and professionalism.

Camp Rolly 2020 Cancelled

The Select Board regrets to announce that with all the complexities and uncertainty of the pandemic, that Camp Rolly will be cancelled for 2020.

Many factors led to this decision. The amount of work still to be done to get the program ready, the difficulty in completing that work under the current circumstances, and the desire to be as considerate as possible in giving families and employees ample notice all contributed to the Select Board’s determination that it was best to make that decision earlier rather than later.

The Town appreciates the enormous disappointment this is to families among so many disappointments provided by the current circumstances.
