From the Town Clerk
Nomination papers for all who took them out for the town election on April 3rd have been certified and the candidates have been notified that they will appear on the ballot. There will be two contested races on the ballot. Two candidates will be running for the three year school committee position and three candidates are running for the water commissioner’s position. No one took out papers for Board of Assessors or for the Planning Board seat.
The election will be Monday, April 3rd at the Seekonk High School. Polls will open at 7:00 AM and close at 8:00 PM. Absentee ballots will be available for the election. Absentee ballot applications are on the Town Clerk’s website under elections.
The annual rabies clinic will be held on Saturday, March 11th from 9-12 at the Public Works Garage on Taunton Avenue. Dog license applications will be available for those who wish to license their dog. Rehoboth Town Clerk’s office will be joining us again this year and we look forward to having Laura and her staff there.
The annual Save a Pet auction will be held March 28, 29, and 30th at the Ramada Inn on Taunton Avenue. This is the major fundraiser for the animal shelter so if you can attend, please support our homeless animals.
A good job shout out goes to our public works employees who are painting the interior of town hall. They have been working for a while, in between snow storms, and are painting each office. Really looks nice and they are doing a very professional job.
Don’t forget that daylight savings starts March 12th. A sure sign of spring.
