Updates to Town Offices, Transfer Station and Police Dept Procedures
 
We are encouraging customers to continue making appointments to conduct business.  This helps us to advise you on what may be needed to complete your transaction so you don’t need to make multiple trips.  It also allows us time to prepare for your visit and have everything ready when you arrive.  Walk-ins are still welcome but will be taken as time allows, while anyone with an appointment will be taken in first.  At this time the Town Office doors will remain locked allowing us to limit the number of people in the building at any one time.  We will allow up to 2 parties of people into the lobby at one time, and request that you maintain physical distancing.  Following state and federal guidelines we are recommending face masks for anyone not fully vaccinated or if it makes you feel more comfortable. 
 
Until further notice hours will remain as follows:
Town Clerk/Tax Collector  Mon., Tues., Wed.                8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Call 744-8454 for Appt.       Thursday                              10:00 am to 7:00 pm

POLICE DEPARTMENT
The Police Department is allowing visitors into the lobby, with the recommendation that unvaccinated individuals wear a face mask and maintain physical distancing.

 
Beware of Scam
Police Chief Tyrrell has advised that there are two scams currently being circulated involving Eversource.
  • One is a demand for past due payments with a threat that a service truck is on it’s way to the residence to disconnect power.
  • The other is telling people they need a meter replacement to continue receiving service and the cost of replacement of $400.00 which they are asking for over the phone.

1828 - When the Town House Hosted New Hampton School Events

The History Corner
"Did Someone Say Snow?"
 
[+ new feature added to NHHS website – Oral Histories!]

As a warm-up to our coming wintry season we share some early photos of abundant snowflakes in a variety of “downtown” settings. These were taken in the late 1800s through the 1950s – and include one Fritz Robbins etching of skiers in front of Berry Hall at New Hampton School. The lead photo is in front of Pillars – which the Bickford family ran as a guest house for many years – and asks the question, “Did someone say snow?” Other photos include: a sleigh heading west on Main Street; deep ruts in the snow on Main Street; and a horse-drawn roller packing the snow. We hope you enjoy these previews of coming attractions! We also hope you enjoy having access to the fantastic Oral History Project that the NHHS assembled in 2013. See information on our updated website (below).

Road Surface Management System Report Results

In March the town voted to approve appropriations to perform an inventory and evaluation of paved town roads using a road surface management software (RSMS) to develop a detailed management plan with recommendations for future improvements.  The Lakes Region Planning Commission performed this assessment and created this plan in partnership with the NH Department of Transportation and UNH Technology Transfer Center. Inventory and Assessments were entered into the RSMS software for analysis, prioritization, and generation of repair strategies. Repair strategies and a 10-year budget plan have been prepared in partnership with the town and presented within this report.  This management plan will be used as a tool by the Highway Dept.
