Utility Debt Restructuring

In consultation with the Town's Financial Adviser, Rate Consultant, and Bond Counsel, the Town is considering restructuring of up-to $25 million in debt.

Public Safety Initiatives


The Town Council, Police Department, and Public Works continue to work on initiatives to keep our community safe. Examples include better signage, pavement markings, enforcement, and education. The Town's most recent initiative is the Pedestrian Crosswalk Flag program, that gives greater visibility of pedestrians and helps drivers be more aware of pedestrians wishing to cross Main Street.
