Writing this on Monday morning and the clouds have now filled the sky. The brief sunshine this morning encouraged a walk, although it began to sprinkle before getting home. Yesterday afternoon temps in the mid 60s were amazing, but while out for a walk with a neighbor about 3:30, a sudden gust of wind nearly knocked us over. New birdsong could be signaling spring, but that seems a bit premature since it is only the beginning of March!
I believe there were 20 to 25 people who attended the informational town meeting last Monday and it was a fairly quiet group. A few people also joined on zoom. All of the articles were approved and I was amazed that there were no questions raised about the town budget.
Charlie Kimball attended and provided answers to a number of questions. He mentioned legislative concerned about workforce housing that is quite limited and broadband expansion, both of which are being discussed. He also noted that he is running for lieutenant governor, so he will not be our representative how much longer.
There was a fairly low turnout for voting and all of the articles passed. Congratulations to Naomi Moyer, our new part-time Lister and Elliott Ruben, our new school Director for Plymouth. Selectman Rick Kaminski let me know that 28 properties are scheduled for tax sale on 4/7 and there will be a second tax sale in May and possibly another in June.
I am experiencing some computer issues, so doing this article from my iPad without access to the few names I have on my birthday list. Hopefully I can get back on track soon!
