The Town has started the sweeping of town roads, beginning with the Amston Lake area.

Please drive slowly in our work zones for our safety and yours and be on the lookout for our personnel, signs, trucks, bright colored shirts and slow moving equipment at any time. Be alert while driving as we have many projects this year, including construction and roadside mowing, and you may find us anywhere in and out of our equipment.

Town projects are well under way as we get ready for spring work. Or is it directly to summer?
Thank you to Boy Scout Troop 58 for their annual efforts to work on the Town properties on the Green. This Troop dedicates itself to cleaning up the center of the Town, along the Green and at the Town buildings.
If you have been using the transfer station, you might notice a new face. Doug Blakeslee joined our ranks as a town employee a few months ago. For many residents Doug will be a familiar face. Dennis Roberts, solid waste coordinator, recently retired and I would like to thank Dennis for his work with the Town for over 20 years.
The annual Memorial Day parade was held on Saturday May 26, 2018. This event is a wonderful way to pay tribute to our veterans. This year’s theme is 100 Years from “Over There” (100 years from the end of WWI). One of the best parades in the area and very well attended. I hope you all enjoyed it.
Recently, the Board of Selectman received an update on the road and bridge project. Due to the permitting process, it has been decided that we will work on plans for the improvement of the bridges on Olenick, Church, Card and Bender Roads. The permitting process for these bridges is not as challenging due to the design of the bridges. The Town will provide residents a definitive schedule of construction once all the information is available.
Some recent town improvements have occurred over the last several months, including painting the entire inside of the Town Hall. The Senior Center garage is completed. Other projects in the works include a generator at the senior center, patching of concrete at the Town Hall after an especially difficult winter, and putting a new look on the Town Hall conference room.
As we enter spring and summer, the Town wants to alert you to some projects in progress.
Road sweeping is well underway on our town roads — starting in the Amston Lake area first and then over a dozen other roads. You will also see many roads getting crack sealed. Dirt roads will be graded and catch basins are being cleaned. All of this is dependent on the weather, and we hope to get much accomplished.
Another large project is to re-do the walkway on the Green. It needs significant attention. Unfortunately right now, the Green is so wet that placing equipment on the Green would damage the property. We are hoping for some dry weather. We have all the material ready to go and are hoping in a month or so we will be able to focus on this worthwhile endeavor.
The Town would like to remind everyone that slowing down in work zones will ensure all of our employees are safe as well as residents. With all the projects planned this year, you may find us anywhere in and out of our equipment. Be alert for our safety and yours, and be on the lookout for our personnel, signs, trucks, bright colored shirts and slow-moving equipment at any time.
The Farmers Market will start on June 2, 2018. This is your one-stop spot for picking up fresh products.
A few other events coming along the way include Summerfest on July 7th and the Lebanon Fair August 10-12.
