The board will also begin the start-up of rental housing registrations and inspections, Groundworks will see an increase in Town funds for a housing project, the Brooks House will get a modification of their tax stabilization agreement, a Charter Review process may start up soon, and more. You can, as always, bring up other items not on the agenda during public participation near the start of the meeting.
Looking for recommendation of reliable local heat pump installers.
The Brattleboro Traffic Safety Committee will meet on Thursday, June 20, 2019, at 8:00am in the Selectboard Meeting Room at the Municipal Center.
The speed limit leaving Brattleboro on Route 30 is wrong.
Currently, the posted limit is 40 mph until after the distillery. The road, though, was engineered for a faster speed. Driving 40 mph now feels very slow.
Driving 40 mph along this stretch seems slow for many reasons. The road is wide as it is. The shoulders are wide enough for extra lanes. The curves of the road are wide and gentle.
Broad Brook Grange will present its 22nd annual Father’s Day Brunch on Sunday, June 16, from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Broad Brook Community Center in Guilford.

Also on the menu are pancakes, French toast, sausage, bacon and home fries, with Guilford maple syrup. Other treats include home-baked coffee cakes and other baked goods, fresh fruit salad, and bread for toasting. A selection of juices will be available, along with coffee, teas and milk.

Amy’s has always offered at least one coffee selection which was organic and fair trade…until recently. Am I the only one annoyed at the change?
The other day I bought a large coffee and one of those personal-size pies at a cost of seven dollars and change. After putting my change into the tip jar I could not help thinking: “Wow, for the same $8 (well, maybe 9) I could have had lunch at the Panda with soup, brown rice, and a nice entrée.
