The State of Emergency due to the Coronavirus pandemic is set to expire June 11th. It expires every 3 weeks and the Governor has extended it every time for over a year now. This time it is likely the State of Emergency, which authorizes the Town to meet virtually, will not be extended. Therefore, we are planning for meetings to be held again in person starting on June 12th.
Meeting information is posted at the Town Hall, Post Office and on the Town website. From the homepage scroll down and click on “calendar” to see the meetings and links to those that are still virtual.
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/

Town Facilities (Library, Town Hall and Transfer Station) will be closed Monday, May 31, 2021 in observance of Memorial Day.
The Rollinsford Water and Sewer District (RWSD) has implemented a mandatory water ban that includes restrictions on ALL outdoor water use including all outdoor watering, car washing, pool filling, etc. It is extremely important that our District members comply (and help spread the word) so we can bring our water tank back up to levels adequate for fire suppression. Once the water tank level is restored to its necessary depth (hopefully within a week or so), watering of vegetable gardens will be permitted while restrictions on other outdoor watering will continue to be necessary until drought conditions improve. Please know that this is an evolving process and the RWSD will continue communication with District members on the current levels of the restrictions. For a more detailed description of the restrictions, go to the RWSD website or watch the recording of the May 25th RWSD Commissioners’ meeting: HERE (Minutes 48:57 through 1:27:52 and Minutes 1:58:36 through 2:23:18 are when the topic was discussed). If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the District office at 603-742-8124 or VIA EMAIL.
