During its Aug. 18 meeting, the Board of Finance accepted a $3,000 Historic Preservation Program Grant that would allow for the preservation of town records.
“This is a grant that’s given annually. It is for the preservation, conservation of records, as well as some other stuff,” said Wilton Town Clerk Lori Kaback.
“After talking with my staff, we have chosen to start preserving some of the minutes, which we are not allowed to destroy — they are permanent records — so we’ve decided to use the grant for that.”
Kaback said the grant would also “get the minutes out of the drawers and into nice, organized books,” making the records “much easier to find if somebody comes in and wants to go through the minutes.”
