Selectman’s Report 8/26/12

by on August 26, 2012 in Selectmen

Hello Everyone,

 It’s been an event filled summer and we’ve made some good progress that I’d like to report to you today.
In response to our need for trained and licensed emergency medical personnel, on our Nelson Fire and Rescue Department, Fire Chief, Rick Lothrop, has organized a training course for a class of medical service provider called First Responder. The outpouring of interest for this training, from individuals in our community, has been extremely gratifying. We have a total of ten people who have volunteered to be trained and to perform as First Responders for our Town. Thanks to all of you. The cost of this training will be covered by the Town and will come from the training component of the Fire Department’s budget.
Lisa Sieverts reports that “On Thursday, August 30 at 7:00 pm, architect Rick Monahon will present his recommendations for the Library basement, Town Hall, and second floor of the Old School House. He will have budget estimates for each project, including several options. All town residents are encouraged to come, ask questions, and weigh in on which, if any, projects should be brought to Town Meeting next year.” We applaud Lisa’s work and that of the Town Buildings Committee. They have organized the development of their work in away that involves your opinions and interests. Please attend the meeting of the Town Buildings Committee on 8/30 so that we can continue this good work. I believe that this meeting will be held in the Town Hall.

Finally, thanks to the diligent work of our contractor, Keene Commercial Interiors, and to the dedication and tolerance of Edie, Teri, and Edith, we are beginning to put the finishing touches on our Town Offices’ Remodeling Project while continuing to provide Town services out of the Old Brick Schoolhouse. Walls and finish work are in place and we are expecting that the interior painting will begin this week. Completion of the work, by our State imposed 9/30 deadline, appears to be well on its way.


That’s all for now. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of a pleasant summer in our great Town.
