On Tuesday, we had a very busy election day with a tremendous turn out. I want to thank the many people who worked extremely hard that day. This was of course our first day with two districts and many more people were required to work at the polls. The election ran smoothly. We all treated each other with respect and so very many of us participated. Personally, I met a number of people who are relatively new to the town and they got to witness the best side of Easton.
This coming Friday and Saturday, we could have a moderate storm which is the remnants of the hurricane which struck Florida this morning. Winds could reach 40 mph and there is a possibility that we could get up to two inches of rain. The following is a brief presentation on storm preparedness. https://www.eastonct.gov/sites/g/files/vyhlif3071/f/uploads/personal_preparedness_hurricane_summer_storms_easton_jwwhd_2919.pdf
