Happy belated Valentine's Day everyone.

News from Montville Town Office

Montville's municipal audit has been scheduled for March 1st. Unfortunately the report will not be available in time for the town meeting. The selectmen proposed it could be posted on the town website, sent out in an email, and available in print at the town office.

Montville Fire Chief John York advised the board the firehouse roof has developed a leak and that Mitchell’s Roofing will be repairing it.

The Town Office will be closed on Monday Feb. 19 in observance of the President’s Day Holiday. There will be a selectboard meeting that night.

Montville Town Meeting has been set for March 24th at 10:00 a.m.  – mark your calendars!

The talented Cindy Schofield is back with another exhibit of her cross-stitch samplers during February. Before Cindy and her family moved to Montville, she operated a craft store in Rhode Island. The counted cross-stitch samplers were made for examples to hang on the walls at the shop. Cross-stitch, in which the thread is sewn in an x shape, is one of the most widely used stitches in needlework.

Liberty Town Meeting is March 24 at 9:00 a.m. at the Liberty Community Hall on Route 220.

That's about it for this week. Until next time.
