Sharon Town Hall open again as of April 1
SHARON — An announcement that the Town Hall offices will re-open on April 1 was welcome news at the regular meeting of the Board of Selectmen on Tuesday, March 23.
First Selectman Brent Colley said that all offices will be open, but visits must be arranged in advance by calling the appropriate office. COVID-19 guidelines will remain in effect. Visitors to Town Hall are also invited to pick up the recently published town report, Colley added.
The selectmen agreed to recommend to the Board of Finance payment of $1,794.32 to the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon, reimbursing a project that laid an empty conduit pipe in a trench dug to service a water line. Colley reported that the Board of Finance felt that the amount could be taken from the current budget year.
“It’s a benefit to both the library and the town,” Colley said. “While the area was opened up, it seemed smart to install a conduit.”The town would then be able to thread any future internet or cable lines through the conduit pipe without re-digging a trench.
A proposed ordinance and application form to administer food trucks wishing to do business in Sharon continued under review and discussion. The selectmen discussed a sample application form used in New Milford, with Selectman Dale Jones feeling that the basics are acceptable, with the selectmen’s office in charge of administration.
The next step in the review process is for the selectmen to compare the drafted application form with the ordinance to be sure that the two documents match up.
