POLICING COMMITTEE MEMBERS NEEDED
On Monday, July 6, 2015 the Londonderry Select Board voted to create an ad hoc committee to study and present a proposal for a possible policing plan for the Town of Londonderry to the Select Board.
The purpose of this committee is to examine and study possible options for policing and to bring a recommendation to the Select Board. The committee will elect a chairperson, hold open meetings, keep minutes and periodically update the Select Board.
The Select Board will study the committee’s recommendation, consider holding public meetings, and determine if a Special Town Meeting is warranted.
This committee will be composed of 9 diverse members of the community who are willing to invest time to represent and serve the community. There will be one member from each of the following: Safety (fire/rescue), Church and School. Additionally, there will be two members from non-profit organizations, businesses and the community at large.
Letters of interest from prospective members will be welcomed by the Select Board during the month of July. Emails or USPS letters (postmarked) by July 30, 2015 will be accepted. A committee will be appointed at the August 3rd Select Board meeting.
The committee will report to the board by November 2, 2015.
Many thanks to the Londonderry Beautification Committee and volunteers for their work to make Londonderry a more attractive location. The “Triangle” opposite the Mountain Marketplace at the the intersection of Rts. 11 and 100 has been weeded and mulched and looks fantastic. The committee with the help of other volunteers has completed the placement of flower boxes on the bridges to brighten everyone’s day. Many have volunteered to water the flowers throughout the summer to keep them looking top-notch. Thanks All!!
THANK YOU, WANTASTIQUET ROTARY CLUB
Thanks to the great work of the Rotary Club the town has seen two beautification projects completed. Over 30 beautiful barrel planters have been placed throughout town. The information building at the Mountain Marketplace has a new paint job, is clean and has current information for visitors. The club and the Londonderry Beautification Committee were instrumental in purchasing and installing the American Flags throughout Londonderry prior to Memorial Day. Please consider making a donation to the club to continue the flower project for years to come. Send checks to: Wantastiquet Area Rotary Club, c/o Barbara Wells, 1211 Thompsonburg Rd., S. Londonderry VT 05155. Great work!
