A town’s most basic responsibility is to provide infrastructure and protect natural resources for its residents. Each year, the Town builds new wells to obtain clean water, provides recreational amenities like hiking trails or pickleball courts, repaves roads and inspects bridges to ensure safe passage for motorists, and modernizes equipment at sewer plants to ensure its operations have a positive impact on the local environment. The Town routinely enforces international building and fire codes that protect our environment, our residents, our visitors, and our local economy.
