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 Sandy last fall.
Community Meal: Christ Community Kitchen holds its monthly meal tonight in the St. Luke’s Church dining room. All are welcome, regardless of faith. The meal is free but donations are accepted. 5 p.m.

Water Street closed: Water Street at the Barbara Tuft's Playground (Lion Street) will be closed 24 hours a day for approximately 4 more weeks. No traffic will be able to pass because of the vertical trench sheeting that will be in the road. This construction is to replace the 90-year-old sewer main from the bottom of King Street to the Waste Water Treatment Facility. If you have any questions, contact the Department of Public Works at 886-8618.
