Good afternoon,

Fall has clearly begun and the foliage highlights the natural beauty of our town. At the Board of Selectmen meeting last night, we discussed dates for a follow-up town meeting to discuss the conservation easement for South Park. Due to the proximity to Thanksgiving, we agreed to postpone the meeting until December to be followed by a referendum. We will also be addressing some minor changes to the Ethics Ordinance and accepting the state grant we received for resurfacing tennis courts and lining them for pickle ball, which will include voting to approve the entire amount of the project as this is a reimbursable grant.

Town Offices & Easton Public Library will be closed in observance of Columbus Day on Monday, Oct. 10, 2022.
