Committee Members Needed: Summer Rec

The Recreation Committee met to review the Summer Rec Program. The committee concluded that the current program needs extensive updating to meet increasing demands and expectations. It was determined that Summer Rec will not be offered in its previous format in the coming year.
Those interested in forming a new committee to determine the future of summer rec offerings should contact selectboard@rollinsford.nh.us.

Stormwater Update

Stormwater Assessments

The Select Board has contracted with Public Water Systems Services, LLC to provide Rollinsford with the identification of the town’s outfalls (locations where stormwater empties into a river, lake, etc.) and to identify, sample and assess the town’s storm drains.   To this end, you will be seeing PWSS staff and our road agent in the process of accomplishing this.

The Town of Rollinsford has been an EPA MS4 stormwater permittee since 2003 and as a permittee is required to complete progress on an agreed-upon plan.    The MS4 permit is in the process of being revised with an anticipated issue date of September 2016.   The revised permit will  be more restrictive in nature and the work being done by PWSS is a start toward fulfilling the town’s obligations.
The Board is also in the proces of forming a stormwater committee in order to plan and ovesee our work on the MS4 permit.   If you are interesting in serving on such a committee please send an email to:  caroline.lamoureux@rollinsford.nh.us (or otherwise contact the town).

Committee Volunteers Needed

We are reposting the request below. We have one volunteer and are looking for two more. We feel that the commitment will be for no more than two meetings to take place sometime this summer or early fall (in time for budget prep for the 2016 budget).

Committee to Review Elected Officials’ Compensation

We are looking for volunteers to serve on the newly formed Committee to Review Elected Officials’ Compensation. The committee will look at compensation for elected town officials and make recommendations to the Select Board based on a review of similar communities (provided by the New Hampshire Municipal Association) or other potential sources of information. The committee will provide citizens of Rollinsford with an extra layer of engagement and accountability in setting appropriate salary levels for Select Board, Town Clerk, Treasurer, Fire Chief, and others where appropriate. We expect the committee to meet prior to each election/budget cycle so those running for town office will know what the compensation is for that particular office.
