Summer is in full swing and business is booming at Town Hall. There is a steady stream of residents each day conducting business in various offices here on Main Street.  Many take advantage of being here while paying taxes or licensing their dogs and they stop in to see me in my office.  I enjoy these one on one visits and encourage all residents to take advantage of my open door policy.  Take the chance to drop by while you are here - if I am in the office, I will make every attempt to stop what I am doing and will give you my full attention.   If, for some reason, I am unable to meet with you; please do not hesitate to set up a scheduled meeting time.  If you cannot come to me, I will come to you! I encourage all taxpayers to take the time to contact me and let me know what is important to you.  Let me know when I have done something right, and most important - let me know when you feel I have done something wrong!  If I don't know about it, I can't address it.


Remember -- the Downtown Farmers Market and Summer Concert series at the Pavilion occurs Every Friday!
Market starts at 4:00; entertainment begins at 5:00.
