4/6/15: Expect to see in the next few weeks Public Works crews along Front Street working on downtown beautification. With the funds raised during the 2014 Pay-to-Park program, the Town is going to be able to replace the current benches and waste receptacles, with the goal to have a uniform Front Street. The plan is to begin on the west end of Front Street and work east, as funds allow.
