REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 2013

We started off the year with electing Carleton Robie back on the Board and re-elected Amanda Soares. This year has had its ups and downs but it all worked out well. The Board worked on closing the old recycling center. They have done lots of testing on the site. Also, they have removed the buildings on the site which the town’s residents voted on.

We hired a new Animal Control Officer and her name is Kaitlyn Morrill. Please call her with any Animal Control issues or concerns. They sold the Animal Control van and have replaced it with one of the older police cruisers. They have also hired a new Police Officer Tom Terilli. He is doing a great job and seems to be a good fit with the Candia Police Department.

The Board has cut the tax rate by 47¢ per thousand. The department heads have kept their budgets on track. The Board thanks them for their diligence.

The Selectmen’s Office staff has gone from three to two and it seems to be working out well. Next year we will be looking at possibly purchasing a new copier and fax machine. Also, there is work that needs to be done on the Town Hall. The building needs to be repainted and the back half of the building needs new shingles. The carpeting will need to be replaced in the meeting room and town offices. Thanks to Selectman Soares, the inside of town hall was repainted and the new pictures look great.

He would like to thank the Board of Selectmen for a great year of working together. Sometimes it was tough but we worked through it. I’d say we did a great job in the year 2013 and look forward to 2014 to being as good.

Respectfully submitted,
Fred Kelley, Chairman
