Montville Town News
Getting back in the swing of things with the sound of a well oiled machine. There's lunches to be made and papers to sign, birthday parties to plan and execute and all that goes along with it. It is truly a process that happens at our house in the morning these days, to get ready for another day. It seems like we always "just make it" to have the boys ready for the bus. The nip in the morning air has grown a little bolder this week, from my little porch on the world. I had to wear my "work" coat on our walk this morning. But I'm not complaining, just looking forward to my favorite season, fall.
Town Office News
The Board voted 2-1 in favor of allowing an ATV access route from the intersection of the Hannan and the North Ridge Roads to the intersection of the Morrill and the discontinued Howes Roads for a trial period of one year. This trial period can be revoked at any time. Signs will be placed every half-mile, as well as at the beginning and end of the access routes. The signs should state that speed limit is 25 MPH, even on the Morrill Road, which has a legal speed limit of 45. The Board asked that the signs state “ride in travel way,” so that people don’t ride on the shoulder. The access routes will open when the signs are in place.
Road Commissioner Steve Lucas reported on the roadwork that has been completed recently. The Peavey Town and Foy Roads have been ditched. The Peavey Town, Mehuren, and Howes Roads have been resurfaced. Additionally, the area in front of and around the Montville Firehouse has been dug out and leveled in preparation for paving.
Town Office hours are:
Monday & Wednesday 9-3 (some transactions 3-5), Tuesday 2-7, 1st & 3rd Saturday 9-11.
