Town Administrator February 24, 2020Is Your Cable Service in Shape?
Small problems can degrade your cable service as well as system-wide performance. To make sure all cable system equipment functions properly, if you see something “off” we want to hear about it! Loose cables? Connections exposed to the elements? Duct tape in place of locks? Damaged boxes? To make sure all cable equipment is well maintained, the Town is advocating on your behalf and partnering with cable providers. Submit photos and information of damaged utility equipment
by April 15, and the Town will use the information in our franchise negotiations. As a reminder, your safety is the first priority. Do not touch equipment, and contact the cable provider if you have immediate concerns.Show Us Your Leash
It's quite easy for dog owners to overlook the impact an off-leash dog can have on children, seniors, and other animals - including well behaved dogs and their law abiding owners - but the consequences can be disastrous. Off-leash dogs have been known to get caught in dangerous situations; hit by vehicles, falling through thin ice, run-ins with barbwire fences and fatal fights with wildlife. It shows respect for others when you keep your dog on a leash; it’s also the law to keep dogs under control and on a leash not over 15 feet long.
Some people are fearful of dogs. A loose dog may throw an elderly and/or disabled person off balance. And a loose dog can create havoc for parents with children negotiating strollers, bikes and scooters. These situations make it even more difficult to move quickly to block or avoid loose dogs from approaching. Everyone should be able to enjoy parks and trails without fearing dogs intentionally allowed off-leash. A resident recently shared with us that "even friendly dogs get tired, may be in pain, rehabbing from injury, or are simply not feeling up to meeting another dog at the moment." We invite you to 'Leash By Example' and share images of your furry (and leashed) friends
