Budget Committee Vacancy

Due to a pre-term resignation, there is an open seat on the Budget Committee. Under NH RSA 32 Section 15(VII) “vacancies shall be filled by appointment by the budget committee.” The Budget Committee is requesting qualified Rollinsford residents with interest in filling the Rollinsford Budget Committee vacancy to contact the Town Administrator with a letter or email indicating they are qualified to serve as an at-large member on the budget committee (i.e., they are resident of the Town, not employed by the Town, and not a representative of other Town committees or boards that would disqualify them). Letters may be dropped off at the town office or emailed to the Town Administrator.

Interested candidates should indicate in the letter or email why they wish to serve on the Budget Committee and what skills and experience they would bring to the committee. The term will last until the next annual election in March 2020.

Candidates must indicate their interest in serving on the Budget Committee by Friday, April 19, 2019 at 5:00 PM. Candidates will be asked to attend a Budget Committee meeting to be held on April 24, 2019 at 6:30 PM in the Rollinsford Town Hall. Brief interviews will be held with each prospective candidate. The Budget Committee will then select one candidate to fill the vacancy.


Don’t forget! Dog licenses must be renewed by April 30!

The 2019 deadline for Dog License renewal is April 30.

Community Involvement Requested

The warrant article to study the feasibility of Rollinsford’s withdrawal from SAU56 passed, and the School Board is now in the process of forming a Planning Committee to do just that.

In accordance with RSA 194-C:2, the committee will be comprised of two School Board members, a member of the Budget Committee, four community members, and the superintendent. If the committee recommends withdrawal (or reorganization of the existing SAU), it will prepare a plan that complies with the requirements in section 8 of RSA 194-C:2.

With that in mind, we are now seeking four community members to participate in the committee!

If you are interested in joining the committee as a community member, please email eCavanaugh@sau56.org by April 10, 2019.

The first meeting of the committee is scheduled for May 2, 2019, time to be determined.

Thank you!
