Well, summertime may be upon us and while many of us be in vacation mode, things may be a little slower at Town Hall as well… but the meetings must go on (albeit on a summer schedule).

As always, all meetings are open to the public and attendance is encouraged… “beat the heat” and enjoy the nice air conditioned meetings!

The Town will continue to closely monitor and test on a regular basis.
