Restrictions on Outside Water Use

The Town has not lifted the water restriction imposed last year due to the drought. While the water table has improved some, the State Department of Environmental Services is still encouraging restrictions because the weather forecast looks drier than normal as well as warmer than usual (which promotes dryness). Therefore, there continues to be no residential lawn watering in Town. Fees may be imposed for non-compliance.

If you receive a water bill from the Rollinsford Water Sewer District, you are subject to a stricter water use restriction. Details can be found here: https://rollinsfordwatersewer.org/2021/05/27/mandatory-water-ban-all-outdoor-water-use/

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday to discuss what we will be voting on in June. This is your opportunity to hear your neighbors’ thoughts, let others know how you feel about topics, and potentially vote to change (or not change!) text that will be on the ballot.

Mask Mandate Continues for Town Facilities

The Governor announced last week that the state-wide mask mandate would expire, Friday, April 16, 2021. However, the Town policy that requires mask use inside Town facilities remains in effect. So please wear a mask when you visit the Town Hall, Transfer Station, or any other town facility.

The State of Emergency is still in effect. Therefore, Town boards and committees will continue to meet remotely for now.

The Select Board continues to monitor the situation and we let you know when operations change. Until then, we hope you continue to take measures to keep yourself and others safe.
