Town Meeting 3/14

Chief Ducharme of the Rollinsford Police Department is concerned about the parking around RGS this coming Saturday for our scheduled town meeting. The chief, our town moderator Joe Caouette and our road agent Jeff St Jean met with the Select Board on 3/9 to review possibilities. Our road agent was able to move some snow banks on Monday and we are currently scheduled to proceed with town meeting this coming Saturday.

Chief Ducharme will have an officer on duty to monitor parking along the streets.

We are aware of possible adverse weather on Saturday. Moderator Caouette will be monitoring the situation and has the right according to RSA to postpone the meeting for safety considerations. In the unlikely event that this happens, we will get a communication out to the website and local media as soon as possible on Saturday morning.
