     First, I’d like to give everyone a reminder to check out the CCM prescription drug card you received in the mail.  Hopefully, many of you will find that it saves you some money.  Please let me know if you find it useful.
     We had the closing on the Edwards/Vadnais property in mid-May, and can now petition the State DEEP to get the funds connected to the $101,500 grant received for purchasing the property.  Thanks to this grant and the generous $15,000 donation from Joshua’s trust, the property will have cost the town less than $94,000.
     The ductwork for the new air-conditioning unit at Town Hall continues to be installed, and it should soon be up and running.  Outside of Town Hall, the playscape footprint has been marked out so that the footing can be poured.  And out and about all over town, the Public Works Department has been busy edging and sweeping town roads. 
     Further cuts were made to the General Government budget at the request of the Board of Finance.  The Selectmen voted to remove the 1st Selectman salary adjustment and the 1% cost-of-living increases for all town employees, as well as reducing the Contingency fund by $5,000, removing $10,000 from the Building Maintenance line item, $2,000 from P&Z Legal & Engineering, $2,000 from Town Garage Maintenance, and $1,200 from the Library line item.  A new fund for the future purchase of an ambulance was added and funded with $12,000; between this and the $24,000 allocation directly to the Ambulance Corps, the town has more than granted their request for $35,000, triple their previous allotment.  Unfortunately, we still are not certain of the exact amount of revenues to expect from the state, as their budget is still not finalized.
     I will be attending a series of mandated meetings concerning consolidation of state Councils of Government, in order to determine which one is the best fit for our town.
     As we begin the summer season, please be safe in both your vacation travels and outdoor activities and picnics.
