Police Space Needs Committee Openings

The Select Board is seeking volunteers from the community to serve on the space needs committee.

 As you may recall, a proposal was brought forth to construct a police station with town offices on Silver Street. That proposal was not placed on to the ballot because the public and Select Board felt there were a number of unanswered questions that needed to be addressed. The reinstatement of the Space Needs Committee is an effort to find as many answers to those questions as possible. The charge of the Committee can be found here or at the Town office.
