  • Not just Apr 22, and out about Apr 24 with clean up efforts
  • Climate and repercussions

Budget hearings

  • Apr 27 - Town (Administration, Clerk, Library, Senior Center, etc.)
  • Apr 28 - Safety (Police, Fire, MECC)
  • Apr 29 - DPW (also enterprise accounts for water, sewer, trash/recycle and stormwater fee proposal)
  • May 4 - Schools


  • Mask, hygiene reminders
  • Rabies clinic info coming May 1
  • Pop up teaser

Links to the key topics covered here are included in the show notes. The recording runs about 31 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie and Anne Marie.
