A reminder that the Firehouse 5K is tomorrow at 9:00am and Newton Day follows at 11:00am. Hope to see you there!

Our next Town Council meeting is Monday, June 22nd at 7:00pm.

Morris Lake was 6 inches below the top of the spillway on 6.8.15.

Invitations have gone out for the July 1st reorganization ceremony and reception.

Caller ID has been installed for our phone system thanks to the Clerk’s Office.

Routine business discussed at the Statewide Insurance Fund meeting.

The updated Personnel Manual has been reviewed by staff and the Town Attorney and now makes it way to Labor Counsel and our insurance representatives for further review.

The Fire Museum team met with Deb Danielson and me to discuss a possible fall fundraiser for the interior renovations of the Museum. I will keep you posted.

I sent a letter to the County Administrator regarding the engineer’s estimates on the Hicks Avenue Redevelopment Traffic Signal/Road Improvements. Hopefully we will have a response within the next few weeks or so.

Ursula is working on the final paperwork for the COAH submittal.

We are awaiting word if the Water Treatment Plant can be downgraded to a T-3.

Pre-Construction meetings on the Spring Street/Trinity Street projects will be held next Wednesday.

The waiting is over! No, not the Rangers winning the Stanley Cup (next year?) – the Taco Bell application will be reviewed at the TRC meeting next week! Live mas!

Have a great weekend!

Yours for a Better Newton,
