Man Drags Stolen Parking Meter

A few weeks ago, I noticed a missing parking meter on Canal St, with a dirt trail from it leading up the street. It seemed very curious; not something sanctioned by the town, so I decided to check my security footage to see if I could find when it happened it. Sure enough, I found it, right around 2am a few days after the 4th.

Some guy came up to it, rocked it back and forth, and ripped it right from the ground. Left the scene when a dog walker approached, but came back around 25 minutes later wearing a headlamp. Grabbed it, and dragged it up Canal St until dissapearing from view. It was pretty hilarious. Must have been noisy, I'm surprised no one saw it.

Selectboard Meeting Notes: Brattleboro Town Manager Search 3.0, Money, and Beer

The Brattleboro Selectboard has decided to again attempt a search for a new Town Manager after the second search process resulted in two qualified applicants finding other jobs closer to their homes. The process was also harmed, in some unnamed but serious manner, by confidential information being published by the Reformer newspaper last week, according to Chair David Gartenstein, who was not pleased.

Brattleboro will see a new brewery open in town, new equipment for town departments, a new committee tasked with identifying Brattleboro’s share of Entergy funds, new parking spaces, new no parking spaces, and more.
