STATEMENT REGARDING CEDAR STREET

Please disregard any private signs in the vicinity of Cedar Street indicating that the street is (or will be) closed.  This matter is currently in litigation.  Cedar Street will remain open for public travel.  Anyone having questions or concerns regarding this matter should contact the Board of Selectmen’s Office.  Thank you.

The Soldiers Monument, located at the Town Common, was dedicated in 1908 to the memory of Unknown Soldiers and Sailors that were lost during the American Revolution, The Civil War and the Spanish American War. The Town Monuments and Memorials Committee rededicated the 3 inch Griffin Rifles that flank the monument on Veterans Day in 2014 with funding from a matching MA Department of Veterans Services grant. For more information see the Veteran Directors FY14 Annual Report.

FROM THE TREE WARDEN -  Gypsy Moths

There was an outbreak of the gypsy moth caterpillar that started last year and it looks like it will continue this year. The town sprayed in the 80`s but if the state and other towns don`t spray it is not effective.

For more information go to  U Mass Amherst's Center for Agriculture, Food and the Environment  Webpage.
