Last night at the board of selectmen we welcomed new selectman Nicholas D’Addario. We discussed protections for boards and commissions members. They are covered by the town’s insurance policy and we will make that information more available so that those who volunteer to serve our town will know that they are protected. We also discussed that there should be a well-defined pathway for citizens who want to serve our town by volunteering for boards and commissions, but do not want to go through either political town committee to be nominated. Anyone with such an interest in serving can reach out directly to the first selectman’s office. Information on this process and insurance coverage will be posted on the town website next week and I will publish the link to that information in my next post. We thank all who have stepped up to help carry out the business of our town, and appreciate their dedication and commitment. It is impossible to run a small town like ours without their help.
