The Hanover Board of Select Persons met Jan. 15 for their monthly meeting. Attending were Board Chairwoman Brenda Lee Gross, Selectman Richard Stratton and Town Clerk Clem Worcester. Much of their activity involved gathering information for a meeting with the County Commissioners. It was reported that the 2 percent early pay discount prior to Dec. 31 had been successful in bringing more tax income than the year before during the same time period. It was noted that this was the second year for the project. The Board reviewed a report from Maine Municipal Association Insurance and took action to replace smoke alarm batteries, install carbon monoxide detectors and exit signs. Other larger items were taken under advisement until spring.
Those who have not licensed their dogs before Feb. 1 will be subject to an additional $25 fee. Remember to bring a Spay/Neuter Certificate and an up-to-date Rabies Certificate. We care for our doggies enough to do the effort to get it done.
Despite the sub-zero weather recently there is still open water where brooks and streams enter the Androscoggin River. The ice is not thick at either the river or Howard Pond where snow covered a skim of ice.
Weekend visitors of Donna and Clem Worcester were Shawnee and Makala Worcester and Buddy Tripp. Buddy enjoyed running around in the snow while the twins liked working on a computer.
