Town Borrows Shoulder Chute for Road Work

WALDEN – The Walden Select Board met on Monday, Sept. 27. Present were select board members Brenda Huntoon, Bob Hatch and Randolph Wilson and Caro Thompson.

The town has borrowed a shoulder chute from Cabot Town to put gravel on the shoulder on Cabot Road, and the International truck is back and ready for winter. The road crew will rent an excavator for a week to replace three culverts and a short section of ditching.

The current FY 22 budget was reviewed, and the board discussed the FY 23 budget.

The Walden Fire Department held an open house on September 18 that was well attended. A crowd was on hand to watch Fire Chief Jason Larrabee present Butch Greaves with a lifetime achievement award for over 50 years of service to the department.

Caro Thompson reported that she and a member of NEK broadband executive committee will be attending a meeting either October 11 or November 8.

The board will meet again on October 11 at 6:30 p.m., at the firehouse and via Zoom.
