The Budget Committee will present and moderate a discussion of the Proposed 2019-2020 Budget. The Selectboard and Heads of all Town Committees and Departments, as well as the School Committee, have been invited to come, present and explain their projected income and expenses. This is a chance for townspeople to ask questions and comment, BEFORE the Annual Town Meeting. Edgecomb Town Hall, 6:30 PM.
Chief Potter told the Selectboard the Edgecomb’s new Fire Truck will be delivered March 11, ahead of schedule. Built to the town’s specifications, it will be capable of accessing our most challenging driveways and remote structures. This represents a successful and cooperative effort of many in the town to improve our emergency service fleet!
The Fire Chief reminds us to post our 911 street address numbers prominently at/ near the road. All emergency services depend on these to save valuable time when they are called.
Reminder: It’s time to register your dog. Please see the Town Clerk during the Town Hall business hours. You should register your dog before the end of the year; however, no penalty fees will be assessed until after January 31st.
Pass the word! We have a chance to get improved Internet service in poorly served areas of Edgecomb, but we need your help. Please take a few minutes to complete a survey, for businesses or residential (“community”) users, so we can add accurate data to our town’s portion of a seven-town regional grant application. The town qualifies as “rural,” a sector currently favored for grants; small, often home-based businesses are a focus, as are residents who lack adequate connection for students or elders who may need health or other services. The surveys are available via online questionnaires (click here for businesses or residential) or in downloadable printable form (Broadband Business Survey or Broadband Community Survey). We’ll also have print copies at the Town Hall. Surveys should be returned before the end of the year, so perhaps do it now, before your holiday plans intrude? Drop them with Ted Hugger at Cod Cove Inn. Thanks!
