January 2017 Town Newport Payables
Big Construction Project
On Jan 5th at the select board meeting, Fred announced he had a grant coming for a big project with a $200,000 grant on the way. Not sure what the grant is for. Fred is not so easy to understand sometimes, but more details will be posted soon.
Lets get the spirit of democracy back to Town Newport. We have to attend just this one town meeting to get the paper ballots voted in. From then on we can use paper ballots all day on Town Meeting day as well as absentee ballots. Then more of the town can have a voice in decisions being made.
Stand up and reinstate “by the people”. Just a small inconvenience to attend the meeting and get it voted in. Lets get it done. See you there n March 7th.
