Construction will begin on the sidewalks and the front steps at the Town Hall starting on or about Mon., May 20. The first phase will be the sidewalks from the first handicap space near the front of the building around to the rear of the Town Hall adjacent to the courts. Once completed, access to the Town Hall will be via the rear of the building while the front steps and landing are replaced. Signs will be posted to direct you and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience. However, this project is long overdue and we look forward to its completion. By re-bidding this project, the Town has saved over $25,000!

The municipal calendar will also be compatible with the Burbio.com site so you can now follow Town municipal events. Thank you to Mark and Pat Damia of Walling Road Technologies for this incredible site!
