    The town government has a new phone system. A new feature of the new system allows people to call the various departments directly, by dialing 270 and then the four-digit extension for that particular office. The town continues to use SNET equipment for its outside lines, and for its emergency dispatching system (which is expected to be revised by SNET in about six months, so the town can have an Enhanced-911 system for handling emergency calls.)

    There will be a referendum on the town’s $33.4 million budget. The budget had been approved by a 95 to 43 vote at the Town Meeting, April 25, but a petition drive led by Camille Taylor and Viola Murray will give voters a chance to change their minds. Over 1,000 signatures were collected.

    A fire heavily damaged a ranch house on Fox Run Lane South on February 28. Estimating damage at $75,000, Deputy Fire Marshal Joe Cavanaugh said he didn’t know whether the house could be repaired of if it would have to be demolished. Nobody was home when the fire was reported at 5:41 pm by a woman who was in the neighborhood. The fire started in a family room at the rear of the house. Firefighters had the fire under control in about 45 minutes. About 4,000 gallons of water were used.
