Happy Valentine’s Day!  XoXo

Municipal offices are closed on Monday, February 17, 2020 for Presidents’ Day.

Our next regular Town Council meeting is Monday, February 24, 2020 beginning at 7:00pm.


Morris Lake is 2 inches above the top of the spillway as of February 10, 2020.  

Work continues with various staff members on possible federal grant opportunities.

No Pool bids were received for the staffing of lifeguards so we are moving forward with other options as previously discussed.

Review continues on the G&H Redevelopment Plan as well as the pro forma for a potential PILOT.

Kimberly continues to plan our events for the calendar year 2020 including working with NFD on the Newton St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Newton Day (with expanded fireworks), movies, concerts, Taste of Newton, and more!  It will be a great year for events once again.

I have submitted a formal request to our friends at SCCC for a PILOT in regards to the McGuire’s property now that it is tax exempt.  I will keep you posted.

Annual report submissions have been received and will be sent to the printer shortly.

Be safe and have a wonderful weekend!  Go Pirates!

Yours in Service,
