On Monday …
Town Council meeting: The Council will hear an application by Silver Spoon Bakery for a liquor license, but will first need to increase the number of liquor licenses allowed. In addition, they will consider a new victualling license for children’s consignment clothing store Lina Piccolina as well as discussing the EG Fire District merger. Also on the agenda is appointment of a Tree Warden for 2013 – not insignificant in the wake of the damage inflicted on many street trees in town in the wake of the Blizzard of 2013 earlier this month and Superstorm Irene last fall.
