POLICING COMMITTEE UPDATE
The Town of Londonderry Select Board continues to seek volunteers to serve on an ad hoc committee to study and present a proposal for a possible policing plan. Interested community members are encouraged to send a letter of interest to Paul Gordon (firstname.lastname@example.org ) or Kevin Beattie (email@example.com) by the end of July.
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.
A committee will be appointed at the August 3rd Select Board meeting. The committee will report to the board by November 2, 2015.
