  1. Eversource is planning more tree trimming.  After admitting that they do not inform residents of their rights unless asked, Eversource’s tree trimming contractor agreed to hold off for a few days until the Town can send letters informing residents that they have a right to refuse trimming.  More Details
  2. A discussion of writeoff policies for ambulance charges revealed that residents on Medicare are apparently being pursued by collection agencies for ambulance charges in excess of the Medicare rate.  More Details
  3. A resident on Big Rock Rd. questioned why the tax card for a previously unbuildable lot near Cable Rd. and Big Rock, that, he asserts, led to the firing of the assessor, had not been corrected back to unbuildable status.  More Details
  4. Despite a commitment by the new Governor to a response within two days, the Town has still not heard back from the NHDOT regarding its plan to put parking meters on Ocean Blvd. More Details
  5. Lang Rd. may be relocated for safety reasons.  However, for two years, left turns from Lang Rd. onto Ocean Blvd may be blocked.  Selectman Musselman stated that this was unworkable.  More Details
