The Brattleboro Selectboard decided once again that there is no climate emergency worth declaring. The proposed declaration was “a mess” and existing efforts were deemed ample.
The board had their expectations managed about possibilities of self governing anytime soon, budget season is lurking, and the possibility of a bike lane on Western Ave will be further investigated.
The Brattleboro Traffic Safety Committee will meet on Thursday, September 19, 2019, at 8:00am in the Selectboard Meeting Room at the Municipal Center.
Paving and pickups are a focus at the next regular meeting of the Brattleboro Selectboard.
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.
