Did you read in the Times Argus that the Berlin Mall is offering the Town of Berlin an empty store front to use rent-free for two years for one or more of the town departments?  This is about the Town meeting requirements for the Downtown Designation as work continues on a Town Center.  There could be expenses involved in preparing the storefront and of course for utilities and in the long term either rent or the cost of putting up a building.  It was in the paper July 20th.  To date the taxpayers have not voted to move the Town offices and it doesn’t seem these expenses are part of the town budget. Please share your thoughts.

*Monday, July 26th 9am – 12noon, all Vermont Town Clerks have been informed that they will be unable to access birth & death records while a state server is upgraded. Sorry for the inconvenience.

*Monday, July 26th, 7pm Public Works Board meets at the Town offices.

*Property Tax Bills were mailed out last week, several came back and were mailed again – did you know even if you don’t receive a tax bill, you’re still responsible for it?  The 1st quarterly payment is due on or before August 15, 2021.  Contact our treasurer with any questions 229-9380

*Sunday, August 1st monthly breakfast buffets are back at the American Legion in Northfield, 48 Depot Square.  All are welcome for a spread of eggs & omelets made to order, pancakes, French toast, chipped beef on toast, corned beef hash, bacon, sausage, home fries, fruit juice, coffee, & tea.  $12 adults & kids under 10 are $6. This happens the first Sunday of each month from 8-11am.

*Monday, August 2nd there will be a public hearing on revisions to our traffic ordinance to include, speed limit reductions on Brookfield Rd, Richardson Rd, & Coos Trail. Discussion around parking and signage on roadways, and creating new parking along Paine Turnpike South that creates substantially more parking then currently exists to improve safety and access for all.  For details see the Town website http://www.berlinvt.org/public-hearing-proposed-traffic-vehicle-ordinance

*Fresh corn from the field is available down at Dog River Farm on Vt Rte 12, there is a lot of great produce available with all the local farmers we’re so fortunate to have in our community and nearby.  Be sure to support them when you can to help make sure they’ll remain here.

*The next Resource Line update will be Friday, July 30th
