As they say, “April showers bring May flowers”. It is our hope that we do not see very many April showers! We have had plenty of precipitation in March to make up for any in April. Fingers crossed that we can begin to dry up around here. As we move into spring events and activities below are well into their planning stages. We hope you can participate.
The Town plans for Earth Day are well underway. Should you have time and want to help out there are a few opportunities. If you are interested in cleaning trash from your roadway, stop by the Selectman’s office to pick up the bags and instruction for Town to pick up your bags. Also should you have time on Saturday, April 28, meet up with Boy Scout Troop 58 in the center and help them placing mulch and plantings. Continue to review the Town website for additional details.
Dirt roads are typically impacted by the spring thaw more than paved roads. Some work occurred on dirt roads in January when we experienced a brief thaw. I am sure that as we move into April we will experience these same challenges. We ask for your patience as we get through the thaw.
The Board of Finance will begin reviewing budgets in April. The town is required to have the annual town meeting on the first Monday in May. Please mark your calendar for May 7, 2018. More details will follow as the date gets closer. The budget meeting calendar can be found on the Town’s website on the Finance Department page.
Over the last 30 days we have welcomed a few new employees. Matt Earls has joined the Town as the Director of the Jonathan Trumbull Library. Please stop by and see Matt.
The Town also welcomes Lisa Clark as the Assistant Town Clerk. Lisa comes from the Town of Scotland where she served as the Town Clerk. Please say hello when you are in the office.
We expect to award the bid for the development of the new roadway at North Lebanon Cemetery in early April. The Cemetery Commission is making progress with the plans for this location located off Synagogue Road. You can expect to hear more on this project over the next several months.
During the month of March, the Town experienced yet another significant power outage for a large amount of the population. Lebanon is serviced by Bozrah Light and Power (BLP) and Eversource. The response from BLP has been good overall for many years. I cannot say the same of Eversource. The response to our Town was unacceptable. Please give a call to any of our legislators, or better yet write a letter to them and issue your concerns. The system cannot improve without your feedback.
Betsy Petrie, First Selectman
