Approximately seventy-five Windham community residents joined Town Council members, Clayton Haskell, Jarrod Maxfield, Tim Nangle, Dave Nadeau along with Interim Town Manager Don Gerish and Town Clerk, Linda Morrill at the annual town hall meeting on Saturday, June 15 from 9:45 a.m. to approximately 10:15 a.m.
The first article of business was to elect a moderator of which Representative Patrick Corey was chosen. Before voting on the other six articles that included excise tax receipts, recreation program fees, user fees against operations of sewer funds, miscellaneous revenues, unappropriated funds, an authorization of the municipal budget for the fiscal year 2019-2020, discussions occurred between town officials and community members in a question and answer format. All six articles passed.
Immediately following the town hall meeting, a public forum to discuss a community survey of town residents with the intention of creating a Windham Age-Friendly community occurred. Briefly, the survey suggestions included the following subjects: transportation, housing, neighborhoods, environment, health, engagement, and opportunities. The funding for the forum (and the survey that will be sent out in the late summer) is provided by a grant by AARP. Refreshments were provided.
