First Selectman's Corner:

Thank you to Doug Spencer for 45 years of service to the Town of New Hartford.  As many of you know, long time highway department employee Doug Spencer has retired from his position.
Doug started with the town as a highway maintainer and eventually became the working foreman, providing oversight to his fellow crew members and taking responsibility for the department.

Doug's service to the Town was exemplary and we wish him well in his retirement.
