Message From the Public Works Director

Mud season is always a challenge, and this past week has presented more challenges than those in recent memory.  A “normal” mud season has a cycle of warming temperatures and below freezing nights as the frost comes out of the ground, this year however it warmed up and stayed warm… which meant the ground never got a chance to firm up each night.  This problem was compounded by 2 days of heavy rain last weekend.

Addressing the problem means putting heavy equipment on already fragile roads, making a bad situation worse where the equipment sent in in to fix the road ends up tearing it up.   This does not mean the solution is to do nothing and wait for the roads to dry out.  It means we have to balance attempting repairs with the potential to cause more damage.  This past week we made 375 trips, spreading 3,000 cubic yards of stone and gravel to address the worst of the conditions.

I would ask that residents also do their part, and avoid driving on unpaved roads unless that is their only option.  Increased traffic means increased problems.  If there is an alternate route to your destination then please use it.  This time of the year is hard enough for our neighbors that live on dirt roads, and your cooperation staying off the roads as much as possible is greatly appreciated and will bring mud season to an end quicker for everyone.  We continue to assess the conditions, and where we can have a positive impact we will do all that we can to address the situation in a timely manner.

I know there have been some comments made about “just paving the dirt roads”, however it isn’t as simple as putting pavement on top of dirt… the existing road would need to excavated to allow for the laying of a stable road bed ready to accept pavement.  Current project estimates for a 2-lane undivided road in a rural area are in excess of $1 Million per mile, and as costly as $3 Million per mile.

If there is a particular area of concern please call the Highway Department 744-8025.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Promotion Within the Police Department

Corporal Killam's being pinned by his longtime girlfriend Sarah

Jonathan has been with the department for nearly four years and has shown continued growth as a police officer. He has taken on many responsibilities and has a true vested interest in the growth of the department and service to the town. His efforts and continued dedication were recognized by his promotion to the rank of Corporal.

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.

Identification of the Mystery Item

The History Corner
When St Clair’s Orchestra Comes to Town, There Will Be No Drunkards!

In October of 1901, Ina Bickford reached out to Charles St. Clair, the director of Laconia’s St. Clair Orchestra, to arrange a performance for a New Hampton School Literary event. The orchestra provide musical programs, dramatic readings, and other entertainment for a variety of venues in the Lakes Region. Ina (NHS Class of 1898) was not only assisting her father, Rev. Lewis Bickford, in operating the newly opened Gordon-Nash Library, but also teaching stenography and typing at New Hampton School.

In his response to Ina, Mr. St. Clair indicated that the cost for a six-person orchestra would be $24 – and as they were coming “by team” (horse and wagon), they would also have to be accommodated for the night should the weather turn bad. Finally, Director St. Clair assured Ina that he would provide “a good orchestra and no Drunkards” as “I draw the line on drink and will not allow it in my orchestra. Tell Brother Baron we will be sober men!”
Laconia, N.H. Oct 11 1901
My Dear Miss Bickford
               Your favor of the 10th inst. is at hand and noted. As stated by Telephone price for Six men Oct 23 is $24 and expenses. We shall go by team, and return after the Dinner is over, providing the weather is suitable; that is, not too stormy. Should there be a bad storm we would have to stay over until morning.
               You need have no fear but what you will have a good orchestra and no Drunkards, as I draw the line on drink and will not allow it in my orchestra. Tell Brother Baron we will be sober men.
               Write me a synobsis [synopsis] of the program, that is the Literary part; and we will be on hand to do our part.

                                                                                                         Awaiting your favor I remain
                                                                                                                        Yours Respectfully
                                                                                                                            Charles St. Clair

Police Department - Limited Access

We continue to follow the recommendations and guidelines provided by Federal, State and Local Health officials, taking the appropriate steps to help curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community; therefore, effective immediately, the Police Department will begin limiting access to the Public Lobby of the Police Department.  Individuals needing copies of Police Reports, Pistol Permit Renewals, or initial Applications should call the department at 603-744-5423 to speak with an Officer or the Administrative Assistant.

New Hampton Police Department will have officers available to respond to emergency calls, crimes in progress, and preventative patrol within the community.  Department personnel remain available to serve you by phone, mail, or by appointment.  The 24-hour connection to the Dispatch Center is available by using the Call Box located to the right of the department’s front door.

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.
