The Brattleboro Selectboard heard the sad tale of the Parking Fund and its many losses over the previous, current, and probably future year at Tuesday’s meeting. Estimates for the coming year are just guesses. One of the hardest financial discussions ever, the Town Manager told the board.
Everything else, however, went smoothly. The Utilities Fund is pretty much as it was before. New paving projects have been approved. Winston-Prouty got a liquor license (for a single event for grown ups, ahem…), and more. No public participation, either. “A return to normal,” your reporter snarks snarkily.
At the next regular meeting of the Brattleboro Selectboard they will discuss two proposed budgets – the FY22 Utilities Fund budget, the FY22 Parking Fund budget – approve emergency repairs for the Whetstone Pathway, review plans for summer paving, and more.
You can bring up other items not on the agenda during public participation. And of course, May the 4th be with you.
The Brattleboro Selectboard will return to non-FY21 business at their next regular meeting, granting permits for festivals, approving liquor licenses, and proposing parking spaces.
The board will also be introduced to Stephen Dotson, Brattleboro’s new Sustainability Coordinator and will hear about carbon offsets and renewable sources of electricity. You can bring up other matters during public participation.
The 5th Annual Par for the Cause – an indoor mini-golf classic to benefit the Winston Prouty Center for Child and Family Development – will be held the weekend of March 9th and 10th at the Winston Prouty Campus, 209 Austine Drive in Brattleboro.
The Saturday evening event from 6:00-9:00pm on March 9 will feature delicious food by Guilford Country Store, a cash bar by Hazel and a silent auction of fun experiences. Tickets are $25 per person.
The Brattleboro Board of Listers will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, August 7, 2018 at 9:00am in the Assessors’ Office at the Municipal Center.
