Railings on 8 Arch Bridge 50% Complete

by Bobby Blair
May 15, 2018

Under the public comments section of Monday night's selectmen's meeting, this writer requested and received permission on behalf of the Downtown Marigold Project to deploy hanging flower baskets on the newly installed pedestrian poles downtown. The endeavor will add 20 baskets of flowers downtown, although at least 2 of the larger light posts are being eliminated which hold 4 large baskets. The Downtown Marigold Project hopes to have the baskets in full bloom by the time the judges from America in Bloom arrive in July.

Adam Fine representing Mayflower Medicinals requested that his client be allowed to grow marijuana for adult use. The company presently grows medical marijuana. Fine stated that the percent of adult or recreational cannabis grown in the first year would be about 20% of the entire crop. The board of two, Mr Marsden was absent, agreed to Fine's request.

Town Administrator Jeff Ritter received his performance review from the board with an above average score. Both Ritter and the selectmen noted the difficulty of replacing former administrator Paul LeBeau who held the job for 32 years.

Selectmen appointed William Martell and Andrew Fitzsimmons as EMT's.

Ritter noted that the railings on the 8 Arch Bridge are half complete and a full wrap-up is expected by weeks end.

Several donations were accepted by the board including $400 for the Senior Center and $1,100 donated by the Garden Club to the Agricultural Commission's butterfly aviary at Pinecrest Golf Course.

Herb Chambers has donated a Ford Escape to the town for use by the senior center.

I can't help but notice the number of donations, some substantial. It's wonderful to live in a town where people are this generous. And the bridge is almost finished, yay!
