Town of Sprague

Selectman's Corner

October 2019

From the Desk of the First Selectman,


                 October has come flying in and the majesty of fall surrounds us all! School has settled in and we are back into a routine of classes, football and hikes in the woods!


The Town Meeting to fix two F-rated Town roads, and to pay for some emergency road repairs, as well as necessary financing costs will be held in October. These are not new additions to our capital assets but maintaining and repairing our Capital assets.


As we move these projects forward, I am hoping that those whose roads have been done will continue to support the completion of our roadway management program by continuing with the plan proposed ten years ago. Let’s support our neighbors!


The Town approved the sale/lease of two pieces of the old papermill property for approximately $360,000 to two interested parties. These pieces include approximately 56 acres leaving us with more than 350 acres available to market. I welcome the revenue but rejoice in the jobs, thanks to those who supported this at the Town Meeting.


Don’t forget the Three Village Fall Festival scheduled for October 12th 11-5 rain or shine!


As always thanks for your support.
