Dept. of Public Works posts speed limit signs Summer heat hasn't hindered Bill Loughridge and his Department of Public Works from being busy, as reported at Tuesday night's town meeting. New speed limit signs have been erected around town to the relief of those residents who complained that cars were driving too fast on town streets, Loughridge said. "Even the kids were cheering when we put them up," he said. Loughridge and his department have "exercised" approximately 40 of the town's 100 fire hydrants, making sure they are working well and have adequate water pressure.

Sewer charges are $85 a quarter for all users, no matter where they live.

Pat Kline of Kline and Co., certified public accountants, recommended rate hikes that would increase the average yearly water bill by $120 and the average yearly sewer bill by $68. No action was taken Monday night on boosting those rates since the town is about a month away from getting the results of an analysis of the overall situation with several mandated improvement projects factored in. "We'll know very soon what we will need and how much the rates will have to increase," Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said.
