News bits from Town Hall. 
I. Former Andrews School site.  2. Election news.  3. Tax Collector warning.  4. Good news from the Tech Director. 5. Flu Clinic  6. Appointments (Blair, Pinecrest)

School Street view of the former Andrews School site (on right.) No progress made on building new homes. Soil tests were done in late July, but builder Steve O'Leary has not filed septic plans with Board of Health as yet.


The Spring Street view of the former Andrews School site finds a waterview where bullfrogs and their friends have taken up residence providing nightime chorus for the neighborhood.

3. Tax Collector reminds us...

AND...as per section 1. of Article XVI of the Town's By-Laws, if someone owes the town money for any taxes, fees, betterments or other, town officials may revoke, deny or suspend permits (e.g. building, septic) until payment is made or until the Tax Collector and said party agree to a payment plan.

4. Town Website
As of October 11, there will be a revised, refurbished, improved website for the town. IT Director Chris Meo says that the navigation will be more intuitive and faster. He has been working with an in-house committee to make it better meet the needs of the different departments. (A piece of good news - all Committee meeting minutes will be linked from one page! No more searching by board/committee/department!)

5. Board of Health
Flu Clinic at Placentino School October 27th from 9:00 am to noon.

6. Appointments
Gretchen Prieve has been appointed to the Blair Square Design Committee.

Six of seven members have been appointed to the Pinecrest Clubhouse Committee. Jamie Fisher, Ann Macdougall, Bob Nemet, Jay Robinson, Paul Saulnier, and Larry Wise. These folks come with backgrounds in food service, finance, and construction, and the Board would like one more "at-large" person (preferably with good finance knowledge - can never have enough.)

The Holiday Bells Were Ringing

by Chris Cain

"O Night Divine," one of the songs played during the Holiday Handbell Concert at the First Congregational Church, was an apt description of the entire experience. A cold clear winter's (Dec 1st is the start of meterological winter) night with the moon and stars visible in the sky set the mood for what was in store for all who attended the performance.
