It’s now-or-never time on the budget. If you haven’t voted, you need to do so on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Clune Center. Your vote really matters! And remember that a “Rejected, too low” vote risks a second Board of Finance bite at the school budget. What we need is an overwhelmingly “Approved” vote to send a clear message now and for future years.
All over town so much is being accomplished for the good. On the town development front, consider the work of our town’s Economic Development Commission strongly supported by First Selectman Lynne Vanderslice. There is huge reason for hope about what these skilled town volunteers can accomplish. Consider also what new Zoning Commission member Scott Lawrence, a successful commercial Realtor, laid out in a fascinating in-depth interview recently. He offered a vision for what our town’s zoning regulations could look like as modestly revised to attract new business. Let’s see what a year’s worth of business development and zoning re-visioning can do to enhance the positive side of Wilton’s financial ledger and bring a “fuller glass” for everyone!
