Happy Summer!

I certainly hope that this note finds all well.  

Our Council Board and committees have been hard at work participating in many town programs and events.

Bill Fish reports that most all of the new street lights are installed and up and running. We can't wait to reap the savings. Approx. $80,000 a year

Tony Cozza reports the Alleviating Hunger Committee will have an upcoming meeting to see where they can be most helpful to our Community. 

Stuff a cruiser -July 6th 9am -3pm Westbrook Town Green

The same goes for the Roundtable Committee as they also have been in discussion as to how to best achieve their goals in improving our community. 

New Harbor Master on board. Welcome Harry. We look forward to working with you.

Harbor Commission busy updating moorings and will enforce regulations by July 1st.

They will have a Mooring registration night at Town Hall June 13th from 5:30-7pm if you need to apply or renew. $20 fee. 

​Harbor channels are being Dredged by the Army Corps. Engineers beginning of June. You may notice the dredging ship Currituck in the area. Please avoid area if possible. They will get as much as they can this trip (about 2 weeks).  We hope this will improve water travel and access as well help in alleviate some of our flooding issues.

Budget workshops were in full swing and our input was greatly appreciated. Lots of research and "homework" went into preparing this years Capital budget. We are happy to report thanks to the hard work of our members and most importantly the work of our Board of Selectmen and Board of Finance that many of our concerns were discussed and approved.  Budget passed and we will enjoy the new upgrades. 

On our home page you will find many upcoming events and dates. Please follow us, as time to time events are updated.

We are constantly working to improve the quality of life here in Westbrook and will continue to do so with your support.

Until next time, stay healthy and safe.
