Sand Dam Commission Formed

From the Issue: 
June 2010
In March, the Town voted to support the formation of a Sand Dam Commission to oversee re-development there, creation of a site plan, and funding of a new playground.  So there is a lot of work to be done in preparation for the changes envisioned.  The committee is beginning to gather public opinion on the projects in order to move forward.  We hope that a wide range of people from the community, including YOU, will participate in helping us to plan a park that will suit all of our needs.

Members of the committee include Committee Chair- Douglas Lyman, Vice Chair- Lisa Steadman, Secretary- Tricia Tucker, Grant Writer- Valerie Britton, Mikel Steadman, and Dennis Pratt.  Each commission member has volunteered and been assigned specific responsibilities and roles.  The members are utilizing their specific attributes and skill-sets to best assist the Commission in its primary goal, to make Sand Dam the best it can be.

We will publish our mission statement and progress in the next issue of the TROY TOWN NEWS, so stay tuned and thanks in advance for your participation!

SAND DAM CLEANUP

From the Issue: 
April 2010
The Recreation Committee is planning a Sand Dam cleanup day on Saturday April 17 from 9 AM until the work winds down.  Tasks will include raking, trimming, painting, sanding, sweeping, pounding loose nails, picking up trash, repairing fences, installing trash receptacles, cleaning bathrooms, and many other exciting chores!  We welcome everyone to attend.  We will supply as many tools and materials as possible, and encourage you to bring your own yard tools if you have reason to suspect there will not be enough.

As you may know, the town voted to support the formation of a Sand Dam Commission, creation of a site plan, and funding of a new playground, so there is a lot of work to be done in preparation for the changes.  The committee has begun a site plan and supplier selection for the equipment.  In addition, we are trying to identify local talent to assist in the project.  If you have a desire to share your skills in landscaping, carpentry, metal work, painting, or demolition, or can help us obtain materials at a reduced cost, please contact us.  Lisa.Steadman@LibertyMutual.com, or (603) 242-6070.

SENATOR MOLLY KELLY

From the Issue: 
April 2010
Jobs have been a big focus for the Legislature this year.  We know that adding jobs is critical to our state’s economic recovery so I’m pleased to report that the Senate passed a bill to implement a new jobs initiative.  It is known as “New Hampshire Working”-- three-pronged approach to preserving and promoting new jobs.  First, it will allow existing businesses to scale back their operations without laying off workers.  Companies and their workers could agree to reduced hours in place of layoffs and the state would make up part of the lost wages through unemployment benefits.  This will reduce demand on the unemployment fund, allow employers to keep their best people and enable workers to maintain benefits such as health insurance.
