They’ll also take up committee appointments and vacancies, hear about new ownership of the Colonial Motel, get the latest on the Waste Water Treatment Plant Project, and revisit the decision to allow a Selectboard member voting rights on a committee.
You can bring up other issues that aren’t on the agenda during public participation if you attend. If not, watch the full proceedings on BCTV and read about it hear the next day.

On Thursday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m and Sunday, April 21 at 4:30 p.m. the film, “Lilac Ridge: Life on a Family Farm” will be shown on Vermont Public Television.
From VPT’s website: “A look at sustainable agriculture through the lens of the Thurber family’s small farm in W. Brattleboro, Vt. When the current generation of owners inherited the farm, they transitioned a traditional dairy operation to organic and added vegetables, flowers and other products. Three generations of the family appear in the film, talking about life on the farm and the changes that have kept it successful.”
Not only is the film about a local farm, it is produced locally by Kate Purdie and Andy Reichsman of Ames Hill Film and Video.
