The Brattleboro Selectboard swore-in two new members (and one returning) Monday evening. New Town Clerk Hilary Francis administered the oath of office to Brandie Starr, Tim Wessel, and David Schoales at a special meeting.
Officers were also appointed: Kate O’Connor is the new Chair., Vice Chair is Brandie Starr and Tim Wessel is the Clerk.
(This may be the first time women have served as Chair and Vice Chair together in Brattleboro. Can anyone think of another time?)
The Brattleboro Shop is now open.
As most people know, I’m a big fan of both Brattleboro and local history. I’ve combined those two passions into a project that others can enjoy - The Brattleboro Shop. It’s an online gift store with exclusive, unique Brattleboro-centric gifts and goodies.
My fun comes from re-making old logos and designing retro-looking artwork. It’s good practice for me to study old lettering and to try to imitate old poster styles, and it is joyful to give some of these old designs new use.
You get to benefit by having access to some really neat, new, unique Brattleboro gifts.

Dear Library Community,
Thank you so much for your patience during the remodeling project downstairs! We know that being closed for a week was tough, and a big adjustment, and we appreciate that. On Monday morning we will be open for business as usual at 10 am. Come and see our new, spacious layout!
We look forward to showing you around :)

Despite Dick DeGray’s call to freeze rates at current levels, utility rates will remain unchanged while the Town conducts some engineering studies to see how many millions, exactly, will be required to upgrade Brattleboro’s water treatment and water mains. Very preliminary estimates put combined upgrades at over $10 million, and the engineering studies will deterimine actual requirements and costs.
Compost will continue to go to the Windham Solid Waste Management District (only recycling will go to Rutland after July 1), West Brattleboro fire station is in operation and sucking well, Peter Havens will be expanding with new space for special events and Jasmine’s Bakery, energy proposals were deemed non-conflicting, and the board shared some thoughts regarding the final regular Brattleboro Selectboard meeting for Dick DeGray and David Gartenstein.
